The annual end-of-the-year silent auction starts Monday, May 29 at 6 p.m. and ends Friday, June 3 at 10 p.m. Our Silent Auction helps fund PTA activities during the year, including teacher hospitality, Family Nights, and Variety Show. In addition, money raised goes towards larger school improvement projects. Currently we are working towards a new outdoor Science Center and beautifying and updating our campus.
