The Yard Sale was a huge Success!

Thanks to all of you- parents, staff and students for participating in the Yard sale.

Our first yard sale was a huge success. The Parent Connection would like to thank all of you for the donations and taking the time out of your day to help set up, sort and work the yard sale. This would not be possible without the efforts of all of you. Thank You! Thank you! Thank You!

Total sales for the day was $8600 which equates to approximately 500 Holiday meals. Our goal is to raise enough funds by December 17th to pack 2400 Holiday meals to distribute locally.

Great Job ISM!!
