Reading Carnival Fundraiser – HUGE SUCCESS!!!
















Thank You to everyone who helped with Penny Wars!  The students did a great job raising money for the reading carnival.

The total raised was $1,383 (Wow!  That is amazing!!)
The Three class winners were Kindergarten, Fifth, and Sixth.  They will get a special reward that they will chose when we return from spring break.
