What better way to send them off, than with a special congratulatory message letting them know how proud you are of their accomplishments! Your message will be printed in the 5th Grade Graduation Program which will be distributed the evening of their graduation.
Messages are $20 each and can be up to 30 words in length. Messages can be purchased by parents, grandparents, or anyone wanting to send cheer or a note of congratulation to one of our graduating 5th graders.


Purchase deadline - May 10th
Message submission deadline - May 10, 5:00pm.

Lifetime Membership Nominations

Donate to the PTA

 

 




It’s time to clean out your closet and keep the essentials that ”spark joy”. Please drop off your donations in the blue bin by the side parking lot. For every pound collected from you, our PTA receives $0.12 per pound. The benefit to you? Neater closets, drawers, toy boxes, and kitchens, and the knowledge that less textile waste will end up in our local landfills.
