Were are excited to announce that we have raised over $10,000 so far which puts us on our way to our reaching our goal of $50,000.  We still need your support in reaching our goal.  The funds raised through the jog-a-thon help to provide classroom libraries, field trips, after school sports teams, playground equipment, student and teacher supplies, and many many other needs that the school has throughout the year.

Remember, for every $25 a student raises, they have the opportunity to be entered into a raffle to win a BMX bike, Lego Land tickets, computer, and many other exciting prizes.

We would like to thank all those who have contributed so far.  We want to especially thank Sharif Faust Lawyers, LTD for their generous donation to our school.

Thank you and remember, our jog-a-thon is on September 8th at 8:30am.
