RAT Race Results
Wow! The RAT Race was a great success with our current total being $7,700! Thank you ALL so much! If you didn’t get your envelopes back to school yet, all donations received through Friday will count toward the individual and class totals for prizes!
This total puts us very close to our goal for the Chromebook purchases we wanted to make. PTA Members, please check your email and spam folders for an important message from " about voting on this expenditure.
