A huge thank you to all of our parents, grandparents, extended families, friends, and neighbors who donated! Also, thank you to all the volunteers who helped make this such a special day! We have a goal of $75,000 We are hoping to hire one para per grade for grades 1st through 5th. Paraeducators help break students into smaller groups and focus on more one-on-one teaching in essential areas, such as math and reading. This extra help makes a huge difference in our children's education.
