Community Dinner

Thank you to all of our students and parents that came to Open House this past Thursday September 15th.  There was a great turnout! We raised approximately $1000 from our spaghetti dinner and $500 from the raffle baskets. These proceeds will benefit our Afterschool Programs that take place in the Fall, Winter, and Spring.

Special thanks to Dr. Tuell and Kate Yerxa who head this event as well as all of the other parent and staff volunteers who made this night possible. You rock!
