Happy New Year! I hope you enjoyed your holiday season and your new year is off to a positive start! Through The Food for Thought Campaign, led by Mary Johns and the Beach Bar, a total of $1240 in donations were collected for our district. These funds will be used to support struggling families with the purchase of school meals and snacks.
