Your Contributions at Work for Your Kids

Due to a surplus in reserves, from years of careful budgeting and spending, the PTA put out an open request to our community of parents and teachers for one-time spending proposals for the coming school year. After being reviewed and voted on at our final PTA meeting of the 2015-2016  school year, we are very excited to announce that all proposals passed. We are looking into the possibility of repeating this process twice next year, in the middle as well as the end, so keep the ideas and initiatives coming.
