The Parents Association’s annual fundraiser is the READ Art Show & Sale. This year’s 12th annual event will be March 27-28 and features over 80 regional artists showcasing their work in support of our students. Last year the event raised over $108,000! There is a ticketed opening reception on Friday evening, this year featuring The Susan Greenbaum Duo, and open free on Saturday. Look for your invitation in the mail in the next few days! This is the PA’s largest effort and as many parents as possible are needed to pull it off. Click here to view a Sign Up Genius for volunteer needs the week of the event, as well as items to donate.
