The elementary will once again be ordering gift cards as a fundraiser this holiday season. If you are new to this program, it couldn't be simpler. You order gift cards through us and we receive a percentage of the order as a kickback. It's really a win-win situation! Less shopping for you and fundraising dollars for us. Hard copies are also available in the elementary office. Orders and payment are due by December 13 for delivery before Christmas break.
Mark your calendars for picture retakes and senior portraits. Ordering information will be posted at a later date.

Parent Educators make regular personal home visits during a child’s earliest years in life, from prenatal through kindergarten.
