Don't Forget to Register for the Annual Benefit
Mid-Winter break is a great time to work on selling your raffle tickets. If every student sells their tickets, we will surpass our goal of $20,000.

Remind your children about great student incentives. Mr. Binus will have to dye his hair and beard blue and orange if everyone sells at least one raffle ticket!
Register for the Annual Benefit today. We have several volunteer spots still needing to be filled. Please take a look and sign up to volunteer.

If you have any questions, please contact  Ali Berdass , Benefit Manager.
