On-line Auction:   Beginning April 9th, great prizes will be available for on-line bidding.  Stay tuned for further details!
Lunch on the Lawn 2.0: After the terrific success of the first food truck and band event this fall, a second Lunch on the Lawn is scheduled for May 3rd.   Please consider sending your student to school with additional funds to enjoy all the offerings.Senior Parent Party April 26th
