5th Annual Move-a-Thon Progress

Way to go Scotties! The donations keep rolling in.

We're now almost three-quarters of the way to the $82k Student Support Fund goal for the school. We need your help to close the last $27k gap so that we don't have to cut programs and services that our school, teachers, students and families count on.

100% participation is our goal. Every family is encouraged to give what they can - if it's $5 or $500. All donations are tax deductible and can be spread out into ACH payments if you prefer to break it up. Please make your donation today.

On behalf of your Move-a-Thon Planning Team (all volunteers!), thanks again for your support of this amazing school we all share.
