What a busy and fruitful March we've had! Your PTA hosted Drew's perennial International Night and 2nd annual Silent Auction on Friday, March 10, and teamed up with 5 other local PTAs to unite our communities at our 1st annual March Madness Fam Jam on Saturday, March 11, at Blake High School! All 3 events were wildly successful and a huge blast! Thank you to everyone that participated and supported us. We'd especially like to thank our committee members and volunteers whose helpful and generous spirits made even the hard work enjoyable!
Our beautiful, diverse community came together to celebrate our multiculturalism in the all-purpose room on Friday, March 10! We'd like to thank all the families, volunteers, and staff that contributed to our wonderful showcase of cultural and family traditions! If you missed it, check out the program below for a summary of the event.
