HAVE YOU NOTICED THE PLAYGROUND FUNDRAISING PROGRESS THERMOMETER? WE ARE ALMOST THERE!!
Student Council is working on raising funds to buy a new piece of playground equipment for the school. The group wrote a grant application to MVSB asking for $10,000 to support this project. They recently found out their application was accepted. But, they are still in need of your help.
Thank you to all of the parents, friends and guardians who joined us for Muffins for Moms. Enjoy these photos from the morning!

Earlier in the year, members of the student council organized a school wide fundraiser cancer awareness fundraiser and collected $289.00 The funds raised were donated to Keeping You Me and Memories Alive which is a non-profit organization that provides aid and support to adult residents of Central New Hampshire who are coping with cancer. The donation was made in memory of formed foster grandparent, Frank White, who passed away a few years ago after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
