PTA Raise Craze!

Each year PTA supports multiple programs for all of our students, staff and families. Raise Craze is our big fundraiser for the year. It will go from November 1st-18th. Raise Craze is an online platform enabling students to set up secure, custom websites where they request donations via email. During the fundraiser, students pay it forward by completing Acts of Kindness for others.

To keep it fun 7th and 8th grade students will compete against each other for highest amount raised. The grade that raises the most will get a special treat at lunch. First prize is a ticket for the opportunity to throw a pie at the principals or teachers face. (Up to 5 students)

Please contact Stephanie Vroman with questions at
