Camp Gladiator Obstacle Course Fundraiser

Today's the day! During MAPS classes, students will be completing the Camp Gladiator obstacle course! Be sure to ask your child how much fun he/she had today.

Thanks to all who donated to our school and volunteered to help with today's obstacle course! This money will be used for student incentives, professional learning opportunities for teachers, guest speakers, materials for classrooms, and more.

Didn't have a chance to participate? We will still be collecting cash & check donations through May 1st, and online donations will be accepted through May 10th. We appreciate your support!
