That is how much we money we raised from this year's Auction. Thanks to all who donated, who volunteered time, and who purchased Auction items!! So amazing! 

THANK YOU 4th Grade families! Our teachers get some yummy nourishment for their potluck!

THANK YOU for your Plant Sale orders. 71 of you placed orders and 127 plants will be filling your homes!! Pickup will be on November 26th, along with the Strudel orders.

Did You Know?

Box Tops are a great way to bring in money to our PTO. We raise a few thousand dollars each year. Invite grandparents and neighbors to clip their Box Tops as well!

We collect Box Tops every Friday in your child's classroom! When they turn in 25 Box Tops (in a baggie or attached to a sheet), they get a little prize from the treasure box. When the class collectively brings in 500 Box Tops, they all get a fun light saber!
