Big Dig

fallhaulHelp us with our annual BIG DIG Saturday, April 25th at 9am. We will clean up the garden area and get the school grounds ready for spring! We will have some tools on hand but helpers (big & small!) are welcome to bring their own. We know families are busy with spring sports this time of year, but any time you can spare to help is greatly appreciated. Questions or concerns or want to let us know that you can help out? Please contact Dave Butka at d.butka@verizon.net.
