The PTA supports our students by strengthening the bond between parents, guardians, teachers, and the administration. We collaborate together to provide financial means to bridge the gaps between educational and social-emotional needs. Funds raised in the 2020-2021 school year will provide teachers with resources to strengthen curriculum to support our students' learning in-person and online. We are endeavoring to continue nurturing hearts and minds by
providing services for our families that are experiencing food insecurity during our economic downturn, and are providing safe, educational events for the students and the school community. We can't do this without your financial support and positive attitude of hope for our students' futures.
