Weekly eNews: ´╗┐August 31, 2017

Dear Parents,

Last September, current 8th-grader Cailin Cannella was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, bone cancer. Inspired by their classmate's strength in her battle with cancer, two of our eighth graders began planning the Chain Reaction Fundraiser, a field day benefitting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The admission is $5 per student; adults are free and family and friends are welcome to attend. Elementary School students have a $1 free-dress Tag Day on September 11th for this cause. We hope to see you there! To purchase tickets or sign-up to volunteer, click here.
