Your PTA dollars hard at work! We are currently in the process of installing awnings over every 2nd grade classroom to reduce glare and heat in those very sunny rooms. Thanks to your hard work fundraising and your generous donations, we were able to fund this $30,000 project. It will dramatically improve the learning environment for our kids today, and for many years to come!
