Thank you to the parents and teachers that attended. The PTSA members voted in favor of the PTSA donating $4000.00 to Desert Heights to assist in the purchase of a canopy for the playground. Plans are to have the canopy installed over Spring Break, just in time for our warmer weather. We will be having our Donuts for Dad on February 5th and are looking for volunteers to as- sist in the set up and clean up. If you are available to assist please contact Lacie Green at lacie.mojo.green@ gmail.com. Also, the PTSA Restaurant Night that was scheduled for January has been cancelled. We are working on our Restaurant Night for February so watch for further information. The following students were recognized for bringing in the most “trash” for the 2nd quarter Trash For Cash Program: Haidyn Bender, Savannah Scheve, Emma Hurley. Mrs. Crawford’s class was rewarded for bringing in the most “trash” as a class. Thank you for all of those who participated. This program assists the PTSA in meeting their “fundraiser” goals as well as contributing much needed supplies to the classrooms and the front office.
