Did you know that the majority of the PTO’s annual operating budget is generated by the Firehawk Dash, an annual jog-a-thon held in the fall? The funds raised by this important event are used to help support our students and teachers throughout the year. Proceeds help pay for important teacher training, classroom supplies, field trips, guest speakers, and new equipment that fall beyond the district’s budgetary reach. In recent years, Firehawk funds helped purchase 30 new Google chromebooks for our classrooms and a new public address system for the cafeteria, as well as pay for valuable enrichment training for teachers.
