  • Flurry of Family Fun (this Thursday, Dec. 15): Middle School has chosen Family Fun Night as our theme for our donation basket to this event, and we would appreciate your donations to make our basket full and exciting to win! No donation is too small. We also accept monetary donations which can be used to buy a bigger item that fits in the theme. Raffle tickets will be sold at the event and the money raised by raffle ticket sales goes directly back to our school. We are still looking for donations.  Please send any donation to the school by tomorrow!
