Fill the Boot!
The PTO, in collaboration with GlobalGiving (and the Australian Red Cross) and the Denver Zoo (partnered with Zoos Victoria), is planning a fundraiser to help with fire disaster and relief efforts in Australia.  Students made posters in their classes with firefighters from the Hygiene Fire Department.  We will be hosting the fundraiser on Saturday, January 25th from 9 am to 1 pm at the corner of 75th and Hygiene, next to the fire department (students will be able to sit on fire trucks with the posters they made on both sides of 75th while firefighters collect money at the intersection).  Interested in signing up?  Click here!

We would like to give an EXTRA SPECIAL THANK YOU to Ron's Printing for donating the hard copy fliers we are using for this event!
