February 2018 — we’re almost to the finish line on fundraising with one event left to go (Family Movie, March 10 at Dunbar Theatre).  Final payment for those going to Quebec will come in less than projected in January and due March 2.  Watch for an email from the school with a link to the online payment system.

January 2018 — email sent to families with financial updates and final payment projection.   Final payment for Quebec trip expected at the end of February. Flights booked for Quebec, and chaperones being finalized for both trips.  Spellathon, Pizza and Hot Lunch still need your support – get your kids raising pledges!
