❤️ We Love Learning!

Note: We do plan on having our Good Grades Drawing again for the 2024-2025 school year. However, we have been made aware that some schools in the area are moving to a trimester schedule and some have already done so. At the same time other schools will still be on a quarter system.

We will continue to do our drawings quarterly, but we will still take all entries! Simply bring in your grade card whenever you receive it and we will enter it into the next drawing – regardless of if you are trimester or quarter. Our gym will continue to have four drawings a year, so just remember to do well in school and bring in your grades! We will post drawing dates for the 2024-2025 school year when the school begins.
