With your support, we recorded over $3,600 in sales and raised $1800 in books for the school. It was our most successful Book Fair ever- over $1200 better than last year’s total. Thank you again for your continued support of our school.
The Tooth Taxi’s visit this week was a tremendous success and many of our families benefited from this unique program. The Tooth Taxi saw 44 students and provided over $26,000 worth of free dental care to those students including tooth extractions, filling cavities, etc. In addition, they made presentations in many of our classrooms. Dental health care is a real need in our school community and we are deeply grateful to everyone who made the Tooth Taxi’s visit possible.
Check out the article in The Register Guard about the visit.
