Save Our Teachers IV Update

Thanks to the generous donations of the families listed below, we have raised over $13,000 for Save Our Teachers IV campaign this school year ($7000 in the fall and $6000 last week). This is a great start to our goal of $50,000!

Remember: we have some wonderful benefactors who have agreed to match our donations up to $50,000. This will save two additional teachers.

Any amount is welcome!…
