Thank YOU PTO!

Our PTO is the best PTO! We appreciate all of the hard work and planning our PTO does to help our campus. Here are a few recent examples of their work:



  • In November, PTO voted to purchase a new device for each classroom. The last of these devices were distributed this past week.
  • We also appreciate the tireless efforts of our PTO board. They organized the students to attend our fundraiser game truck on Thursday and Friday. The kids loved the snow cones and getting to play xbox at school!
  • The new sign you see on the fence was purchased by PTO and I think it looks great!
