Volunteers & Donations Needed:

Passions Day: We are continuing to plan for this year’s Passion Day which will be during the school day on Friday, March 27th 2020. Passion Day is an annual event where we invite family and community members to come present their passion/talent/hobby/career to our students. Students rotate to different rooms throughout the day (as a class) and listen to various presenters. If you are interested in volunteering to present your passion please go to:

Edfest: If you would like to volunteer to support EdFest, our annual spring auction that is an adults only event, please reach out to Valerie Recore, PTA Vice President at

Edfest Classroom Baskets: We would like to collect a themed basket from each class to raffle off at EdFest. This was a lot of fun last year and we would love to see your creativity shine again! It is a great way to raise a lot of money through the power of many small donations. We hope one parent per class signs up to coordinate class donations and to
assemble to basket. Please sign up up
