THANK YOU for your support of the PTA Foxtober Fundraiser! Your generosity will benefit our students directly in the form of curricular/classroom supports and materials, digital resources, assemblies, STEAM Day and Science Fair, just to name a few! The PTA also funds FUN activities for students like classroom parties, Fry’ Got Talent, and the 5th Grade Farewell Celebration. YOU make it all possible!
A special thank you to Mrs. Johnson and Mrs. Burlingame, along with their committee and ALL the volunteers who made the Foxtacle Run last Friday a GREAT event for all the kids!
