Square 1 Art Fundraiser
Applebee's Fundraiser - Thank You!
We had a great turn out for last Saturday's Applebee's Flapjack Fundraiser and raised $630 for the Home and School Association. That's more than we raised the past 2 years!
THANK YOU to Meg Dick for organizing the event and to all of you who joined us for breakfast. And extra special thanks to Dr. Graf and all of the teachers who gave up precious hours of their Saturday to serve us all.
