Thank you to all the families who participated in our Spirit Night on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 with Manhattan Pizza!  We raised more than $200 for our school thanks to your orders!!
Huge kudos to all the families and staff who came out on Saturday, September 21, 2019 to our "School Beautification Day!"  It was a fun filled day working together to clean up our campus.
