DDFL Fundraiser & Pajama Day -Tomorrow, Friday May 10th!   
Let's get comfy for a great cause! Our Girls on the Run team has organized a fundraiser to support the Denver Dumb Friends League. We encourage all staff and students to participate by wearing pajamas and bringing a donation to support the amazing work of the DDFL. Students can bring change or larger donation amounts--anything helps! Teachers will collect money in their classrooms. Thank you for helping us raise money for this great organization! We hope to see you in your favorite PJs tomorrow! Please remember to wear regular shoes and jackets as we will have normal outdoor recess.
