 What's the goal? $30,000!

We need to "fill the pumpkin" with $30,000 to fund this year's programs. If you haven't yet donated, please consider a donation around $125 per child, or what you are most comfortable donating. (Last year the PTSA spent about $133 per child.) No contribution is too small, but please give generously if you can. We thank you in advance for helping us reach this goal and keeping our much-loved programs active for another school year!
