There’s Still Time to Pay Your PTO Dues
It is very important for families to pay for their Bulk Supplies ($75 per child) and, if able, their PTO dues. There is still time to pay your 2018-2019 dues and to help the PTO support our children and teachers. Follow this link for more info and to submit payment. To see where your PTO dues go, take a look at the draft budget for the 2019-2020 school year.
Cereal Drive Kickoff Begins May 8
