1 Goal- $20,000.  Your generous gift helps....
#1: Classroom Enrichment: $6,000 Needed. Teachers thrive when given the opportunity to implement new and inventive strategies and programs in their classrooms. YOUR fundraising helps them to buy things that will enrich their teaching AND your students' learning. They will need our support more than ever due to budget cuts!
