4th and 5th will run at 10:45

The bigger the crowd the more fun for the students so ALL are welcome!

It’s going to be hot on Thursday and we STILL need volunteers to help keep our kids hydrated. Please use this link to volunteer to hand out water.

No internet access or prefer not to use a credit card? No problem! Cash or Check pledges can be sent in to school in an envelope marked with the student’s name and the teacher’s name. The boosterthon team will input these pledges into your student’s dashboard.

Don’t forget..if we meet our school goal, Ms. Aguilar gets slimed AND we are well on our way to improving our school acoustics.
