Dear Parents,

Each year the PTA raises money to cover the school expenditures and programs not paid for by the Department of Education. Our major fundraiser each year is the Annual Appeal (AA).  This year our goal is $375,000.  If everyone pitches in, we can get it done together.  Please help us reach our goal of 100% participation by November 1, 2017.  THE FIRST CLASS TO REACH 100% PARTICIPATION BY NOVEMBER 1 WILL WIN A PIZZA PARTY WITH DOREEN. Thank you in advance for your participation.
