PTA Donation Drive

The Annual Giving Campaign is here! It is one of our school’s biggest fundraisers of the year. Your donations fund various programs that nurture our kids everyday, such as Mental Health Therapist, Distance Learning Platforms, Reading Specialist, Library, and Spanish. Our children need these programs more than ever during this pandemic, so that they can continue to learn lifelong skills that enable them to participate and contribute to the community. The suggested donation amount is $500 per student this year, but participation at any level is welcome. Donations can be made by cash, check, or online, and are tax deductible.
