Start with a Bang!
Our annual fund continues for its second consecutive run! While we will not ask you to sell cookies or wrapping paper, we do ask for your financial contribution to help our school be awesome. Look for a letter from PTO presidents Hannah Jans and Ernesto Alfaro this week and please consider making a tax-deductible donation- even a little bit helps!
Thank you to all the families who came out to the Start with a Bang! Block party on Sunday. We had a good show of support from the Wilson and Heights communities. We're ever so grateful for your continued support.
