The PTO has several fundraisers during the year. Marcus Theatre Tickets, Taffy Apple Sale, and Grissom Spiritwear are just a few. With our profits, we can provide our students and school many “extras” that might not be possible without your help.  Participation in these events is greatly appreciated.
