New PTO Officers

We are so excited to welcome Jana Jordan as our new Treasurer and Crystal Herinckx as the Teacher & Staff Appreciation Coordinator (she also manages the Scrip Program).  A BIG thanks to these two ladies for stepping up to help out!!

Check out additional opportunities for helping on the "Volunteer Opportunities" tab above.

Brave Run Power

Thanks to a VERY successful Brave Run Event the PTO was able to donate $7,559.73 to purchase new media carts and printers for each classroom.
Thank you Brave Run Committee and Participants!!!!

Classroom Money

This morning the PTO presented $2300 in "Classroom Money" to the teachers.  Each regular classroom received $100 and specialist classrooms received $50.  We hope this helps to offset classroom expenses.
Thanks to everyone for helping the PTO raise money allowing this to be possible.
