School fundraising cannot occur without the support of our school community. Our sincerest thanks for the tremendous effort that our families placed into completing our recent chocolate sales fundraiser, it was a huge success. We are calculating our final profit totals and will be able to share that information following March Break. Planned expenditures from the proceeds of our fundraiser include:
- New team uniforms to be used for basketball, volleyball and soccer;
- New painted visual cues to encourage a positive school culture, mental wellness, and the social and emotional well-being of our students;
- Continued additions to our outdoor space;
