PTO would like to thank all the families who paid their PTO dues for the 2018-19 school year. PTO collected $5870 in dues. All of this money goes back to the school in the form of new supplies, campus projects and updated materials for the benefit of all our scholars.
PTO is also happy to recognize our Premium Level donor families, the Ator’s, Koch’s, Weller’s and Solano’s.
A very special thank you goes out to our Gold Level and Platinum Level families, The Shibler’s and the Hyman’s for their generous contributions to PTO. We look forward to installing your custom engraved bricks after our new building construction is complete.
Thank you all for your support.
