We offer a special thanks to the 2014 Class Sponsors, who have made significant contributions to their education from kindergarten to now:

Jack and Sandy Senich

And thanks, too, to our 5th grade sponsors:

It takes a great deal of support to provide our students with our successful model of education.  Thank you for making it possible!
