Latest News 10/28

We are pleased to announce that the 6th grade donated the most to our PAWS for the Cause fundraiser!  Since all of the students were able to a dress like a superhero during Red Ribbon Week, our 6th graders won a ‘use your device day at lunch’ for Friday, November 4th!  We raised $14,450 through our PAWS fundraiser.

On November 11th, we will be honoring the veterans in our community.  The sixth grade will attend a Veteran’s Day Assembly and afterwards the PTO will host a reception for the veterans who attended.  Please check the SUG to see if you can donate some breakfast items or help serve at the reception.


The Jag Dash Committee wants to express their sincere appreciation for everyone who contributed to the event.  Whether it be by volunteering, donating, running or purchasing silent auction or raffle items, we appreciate your support!
