January PAC Meeting: Event Planners Wanted!

After a very successful start to the year, we have raised $6900 towards field trips, classroom enrichment, sports and athletics, and technology. We were also able to fulfill $2500 worth of teacher funding requests! Thank you for your continued generosity. We are now busy planning new events to continue our fundraising efforts and would love to hear your input!

Join us Thursday, January 22nd at 7pm to discuss some exciting opportunities to get involved at the school. We are considering a Valentine’s Day family event and will start planning a much discussed year end family fun night. We are on the hunt for energetic and creative parents who love to create memorable events! If this is you, please join us for refreshments, door prizes, and lively discussion at this month’s meeting to find out more.
