What are the funds for?
Last year, funding for field trips was cut from the district budget. You may have noticed that the permission slips that came home had steeper fees per student than they did the previous year. They would have been much more had Parents Club not helped out by assisting with funds for transportation. Our goal this year is to allow every grade to participate in at least one (if not two) educational and affordable field trip. We need your help to do that.

Our playground is in need of repair and update. Parents Club been raising funds for this goal for some time, but with rising costs and rising needs, we’re still short. Having a better place to run and play will help our kids stay fit and healthy.

Why a Wellness Walk?
The rate of childhood obesity has tripled in the past 30 years.
Obese children have a 70% chance of being obese adults.

Obesity isn’t a childhood problem, it’s a community problem. We can all make changes to model better wellness behavior and teach kids to make healthier choices.

How can you participate?
