M.L. Rose Restaurant Day

Teacher Appreciation Week Success

A huge thank you to all of our students and parents who supported our staff last week during Teacher Appreciation Week. We are also so grateful for the support of several local businesses – Pancho & Lefty’s, who provided an ENTIRE lunch for our staff free of charge, as well as Coco’s Italian Market, Sweetability, Brightside Bakeshop, and Bradley’s Creamery, who provided their services at a discounted rate so that we could spoil our teachers!

Hattie B’s Success!

We raised $1500 for our school thanks to everyone who came out for our restaurant fundraiser with Hattie B’s. They are a terrific partner, and we are grateful to have such generous businesses in the neighborhood! Next up is M.L. Rose in May!!
