Join Us for Our Annual Gala on March 11!

Our Annual Gala is coming up on March 11 and this is an event you don’t want to miss! This is your chance to come together with your community to support the school in a big way. Imagine a 1920’s setting with a champagne tower, lounge seating, and guests dressed to the nines tossing rings for wine, collecting beads for the 50/50 in-house raffle, cutting the rug with the Soul Tight Committee…and more! It’s gonna be the bees knees; all we need is you.
