Boosterthon - Jan 18th
Our first Boosterthon Fun Run was a HUGE success! Our amazing students and families raised about $20,000 and look forward to using it on our students. Our students and staff were energized by Kowabunga Kelsey and Lightsaber Luke as we learned about citizenship, zest, growth mindset, integrity, and teamwork. Thank you to the donors, volunteers and families that came out to support our students. !
