I would like to thank all the parents, teachers, and staff that helped make the Dune Grass Field Trip and Dance a HUGE success for our 6th graders. They did an AMAZING job at both events. I am very proud of the students. Again, thanks so much for all of the donations of time, hard work, drinks, and food. All of your hard work created 2 fun events for our 6th graders.
