The school parking lot received a much needed facelift this past week! This will be such an improvement for our school and community! No more wading through mud puddles while attending school activities!
Just wanted to update all of you on the results from our Read-A-Thon. Thank you so much for all your continued support. This was a last minute fundraiser and your students were awesome! They raised approximately $9,300 after prizes. We will continue this fundraiser next year and hope to raise as much or more. The money from this fundraiser will go towards a pavilion for the recess area. This pavilion will allow our students to stay out of the weather when necessary and also provide a gathering place for the community. We are so excited and have wanted one of these for a long time now. Currently, we have approximately $17,000 we have earmarked for this project with a lot more funds to be raised. Keep watching for our progress on this Pavilion Project. Once again, GREAT job Imbler Panthers!
