    • We have kicked off our first fundraiser this year with the Boon Supply reusable bags to help with the changing law banning single use plastic bags.  We have a display in the lobby of the school if you would like to see first hand what can be purchased with this fundraiser.  It is not only reusable bags but also kitchen supplies, some tasty treats, and even stocking stuffers (if you want a jump start to your holiday shopping!).  Our Fundraiser will run until Monday September 23rd.  Thank you all for your help!
