THANK YOU, TROJANS for getting us closer to our goal of raising $100,000 for our Annual Fund! At our deadline the evening of February 25th, we hit $71,049 with 214 individual donations! With matching employer funds beginning to come in, we will hit even closer to our admittedly ambitious goal!
Classroom Competition Results:
We had a tie and therefore are awarding 4 rooms! Ms. Buntichai, Ms. Kuo, Mr. Vuong, and Ms. Sevilla’s classes will enjoy an ice cream treat in the upcoming weeks.
The donation door is never closed. Please know that you are always able to donate. In addition, you can use our Amazon link, as well as give Roosevelt’s name at Sports Basement to passively raise funds.
