Attention Sixth Grade Families

Sixth grade camp is only possible through your generous support and donations. There is a chance that we may either have to cut our trip short or cancel the experience altogether this year if we do not make our fundraising goal. If you have not contributed and can help in any way, please send donations to the office by Friday, January 17. Thank you for your support of our programs! Please contact for any questions or concerns.
