  • PTSA Information:
    • Please consider joining our parent-teacher-student association. You can learn more by viewing their mission statement video here
    • Thank you to everyone who donated to our Annual Fund! To date, we have received $18,513.96 towards our $30,000 goal. Funds we raise support our school, staff, and students. Our work is not done, however. The Arts Boosters typically covers all art-related items (art classes, dance, music, theater, etc...), things we as a PTSA have not budgeted for. Unfortunately, the Arts Boosters does not have a Board and therefore is unable to support these needs at this time. Of course, your PTSA wants to support our school in every way possible. To do that, we need to reach and exceed our Annual Fund goal so we may fully fund our budget AND the arts needs at our school. Please donate to help us support the arts this year. If you are interested in helping the Arts Boosters this year, please reach out to
