UPDATE: The Gratitude Project has concluded — thank you to everybody who participated!
The PTSA has received a $5000 wellness grant and has come up with a great way for all of us to take our minds off all things that are stressful in 2020 and provide a chance to win $100 (maybe even $200)!
Lift your Mood with Gratitude and you could win $100!
During these difficult times shifting our focus to the things we are grateful for can really lift our spirits, as well as those around us.
Note: There is always a small chance that the meeting date will be changed. If so an update will be sent to the PTSA email list and posted here.
