A Note from Mrs. Mathe

Today was an AMAZING day! Our students did an amazing job during their Fun Runs and the smiles on their face tells me that they enjoyed their time as well!

I am overwhelmed by the support you all have provided your child and our school! As of this morning, we have reached our fundraising goal of $45,000!!!!! So... it looks like I'll be spending the day on the roof of the building! Even better than that is we met our goal of having at least 90% of our students registered on mybooster.com! I know we are all excited to see Mr. Kirbo taped to the flag pole! We will be sure to share pictures with you all as your hard work as a parent has helped us achieve our goals!!!

Thank you again, I am humbled and honored to serve as your school principal!

We would like some feedback from today's event. If you would like to take a short survey, please click here. Thank you!
