Fall Campaign Update

Thank you so much Stallions, our community pulled together and raised $13,500 and exceeded our goal!​  We are still receiving corporate matches, which is wonderful! If you donated don’t forget to check to see if your company will match your donation.  This really successful Fall Campaign will help secure our science and PE programs even with increasing costs. Thank you families and staff for all your support!

All families that donated at the Stallion Level ($150) or above are invited to our tile painting events.  You should have received an evite with details about the tile painting party in the MPR on Thursday, Nov. 19th.
