Spring Fling ROCKED!

We did better than every this year - it was touch and go for weather but what a great evening. PTO raised over $11,000 - all dedicated to their priorities of putting money back into our school. This year they helped to fund to support specialists, purchase supplies, teacher appreciation items, teacher grants, the drama program, After-School Enrichment, cultural enrichment, and more. Thanks for everyone's help - our children and parents were full of smiles and the sense of community was truly amazing. Thank you!
