In early 2015, when we were planning for the school year 2015-2016 and beyond, we took up the challenge of finding a space for our rising fifth graders. The school was at capacity and we needed YOUR HELP to build a new 5th grade classroom.You did help and we thank you!
 
This is how far along we have come with your generous support.
 
Now, Let’s finish what we started!
 
How can you help?
