*BIG Serve Kick Off for New Parents – Monday, February 24th
The BIG Serve is our school’s annual service project and fundraiser. Each year we kick off the BIG Serve with a fun family event. We will enjoy family fellowship, watch a brief slide show presentation of the BIG Serve, and hear details about how to be involved with this important fundraiser. For the last five years we have reached or exceeded our fundraising goal — let’s do it again in 2020 and reach our goal! And remember, the funds your family raises through the BIG Serve offset the Legacy Fund fee. All families are welcome to the kick off, but we really encourage new parents to attend so they can learn more about the BIG Serve.
