Parent Survey

Thanks to Our Community!

Our community support has been tremendous the last couple weeks. Mad Flavors and J & J Beauty Supply have been nothing short of amazing in aiding in our Fall Festival and future PBL's. Our students called and asked if they would be willing to donate mannequin heads and wigs and they stepped up to the plate with no hesitation. Combined they donated 12 mannequin heads and 35 wigs! Our students were thrilled and are now able to participate in different events and activities that were not possible before this.
