We need your support!

Be Extreme by helping us raise needed funds that will provide
resources not funded through our school budget. These are the
“extras” that enhance your child’s education! We will reach our
goal if each student sells 10 or more items from the enclosed
brochures and website.

For every student who registers 10 emails they will receive a Fidget Spinner.

All funds raised will be used to support:
• Student and Teacher enrichment.
• Additional supplies and activities.

We hope that we can count on your support! Don’t forget to
register online for additional ways to spread the word and raise
