Did you know that you can help your school raise money for our students without spending an EXTRA penny? Here at school we are trying to be fiscally responsible with the tax dollars we receive from our residents.  Those tax dollars are shrinking each year, but we must still educate or youth and provide them with extracurricular opportunities.  We are currently participating in the following fundraising programs provided to us by bigger businesses.  Please click on the links below and see what a few seconds of your time will help us to receive extra money and supplies to help serve our youth.  Send your items with your child or grandchild, niece or nephew to the community education office or to any one of the school offices.  If you don't have kids in school, please feel free to help us by dropping off your items to any of the school offices.  Thanks so much for your help.
