Thank you from the PTA for such an amazing year!  Though entirely different than usual, we still raised near $50,000 for our amazing school!  We voted during our May meeting to spend funds on technology, guided reading sets, and refurbishing the playground.  THANK YOU to Brooke Wiseman for having been our staff/PTA liaison these last several years - her communication has helped drive our PTA vision and fundraiser success!  Sarah Wilson will be taking over as PTA President next year, beginning July 1st.   Should you have any concerns, questions or want to get involved, please reach out to us as always at on FaceBook or my personal email address (
