Cascade Elementary

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the spring Wolfgang Candy fundraiser. It was a huge success with the school raising more than $1,600. The money earned will be used for instructional materials.

The school would also like to thank the PTA for holding its 10th annual auction, which tallied more than $6,000. What a great accomplishment for all their hard work. Special thanks goes to the PTA for its continued support of school programs such as the Character Education Program. The staff appreciates their financial support for field trips, assemblies, etc.
