We are still looking for families to host home parties. These are big sellers and a great way to help the school and meet new friends.

We are still looking for someone to run our dessert auction, if you are interested please email Cherisse Riney.

Thank you to Jenny Gysin for all the wonderful donations that she has solicited! This auction couldn't happen without wonderful volunteers like her.
