Important Dates


  • The Annual Fund campaign is winding down this week and we are well-short of our goal of $42,000.  This is understandable as only about 20% of our families having participated so far.  It is crucial that everyone participates if we are going to come close to our goal.  We cannot continue to operate with a financial deficit without cutting programs and personnel that support our students.  Please make your donation this week!
  • Monday, April 14, is a B Day
  • Lunch ordering ends on Tuesday
  • The Sweet Frog Fundraiser is on Tuesday.
