Centennial Gala was a Success!
Proceeds from the Gala will be used to restore and beautify the outside learning spaces for the students. Projects include putting in artificial turf, rebuilding the gazebo, adding tables and benches underneath, purchasing umbrellas for the existing outdoor tables, as well as completing the landscaping and adding benches in other spaces as well.
