We are continuing our fabulous basket raffle tradition at the Silent Auction & Talent Show on May 19th. For $1 anyone can buy a raffle ticket for a specific basket but first, we need to collect those basket items! We have assigned each grade level a basket theme.
Please choose an item (or more!) that matches the theme, and send it to school with your child between Monday, April 10th and Friday May 5th. We need your help to make this raffle a success!
You can print the basket raffle flyer for friends and family as well!

What will the funds raised from the raffle be used for?
The PTA is working on funding more programs in the classroom including: Roots of Empathy, student field trips, teacher directed programs and hands on experiences. We are also working to raise money for scholarships so more families can participate in the afterschool enrichment classes.
