DR MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR DAY MONDAY 1/15/2024 - NO SCHOOL
As our students have learned about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s work and legacy, we encourage families to take time during this day of observance to talk with each other about his important work for this country, and for humanity.
ANNUAL CASINO & COCKTAILS AUCTION EVENT IS SEEKING DONATIONS
The “Casino & Cocktails” annual parent night out fundraising event and silent auction will be held in March this year (more details to come). We’re now accepting donations for the silent auction and we need your help!
Have an awesome vacation property available? Donate a weekend! Season tickets to a hot sporting event? We’ll take them off your hands! Other top sellers include things like summer camp credits, tickets to Disneyland, live show takings, restaurant gift cards, private chef packages, and more! The funds raised go towards all of the amazing FOT-sponsored programs that our kids know and love, like PE, Tech Lab, Science Lab, Music, and more.
If you’re interested in joining the planning committee for this exceptional event, please reach out to Jenn and Melissa!
