The success of the PTA hinges on the support from our parent community. There are many ways in which your family can support our efforts. We hope you consider donating your time, talents, and funds generously!

- Book Fair and Birthday Book Club (which allows us to support the library)
- Walk-A-Thon (this is the bulk of our fundraising efforts and allows us to purchase all other supplies and fund all other programs mentioned above)
