A big thank you for your support with last week’s McTeacher Night.  In a matter of three hours, we were able to raise a little over $800.  A majority of those funds came from our apple pie sales and tips.  All funds will support school-wide programming. Thank you!!!!  


Please take time to give a big cheer to our Robotics team.  This weekend they will compete in the state tournament.  We are excited about how far our 1st year team has come.  Good Luck Rad Robotics!!!!!
