Boosterthon fundraiser

Big World RecessBoosterthon is here again! Please mark your calendars for our Husky Fun Run on the morning of April 15th! We encourage families to come join us as we cheer on our students.

With the Husky Fun Fun, there is no selling or delivering products, and it reinforces the value of fitness. Family and friends anywhere can support our school by giving pledges toward the number of laps your student will run on April 15th. Our school goal is to raise $30,000 this year.
