Please Help Donate for School Supplies!

Our youngest learners are heading back to school for in-person hybrid learning! The PTA has committed to purchasing school supplies for each student going back to in-person schooling. As you can imagine, this looks different than previous years since students will not be sharing supplies and materials this year.

We need help with funds to purchase all the supplies necessary for our students going to in-person learning - if you are able, please consider donating! Any amount helps!

Click the "Donate for School Supplies" link to the left!

Thank you for your help supporting our little learners!
