After two years of work, and the successful completion of upgrading the library furniture, the PTO's new major initiative is raising money for modular seating in the cafeteria. This will make the cafeteria a more friendly, appealing place where the students will want to hang out and eat. Every dollar makes an impact! Click here for more information.
