This Association will begin in the school year of 2002-2003. The
purpose of this Association is to work on two aspects for the
school: fundraising and recruitment of future students.
Fundraising would be for capital improvements, technology, and
instructional materials. This can be done through fundraisers,
grant writing or cost effective programs. The other purpose is to
build on the future viability of the school. Having a constant and
strong enrollment will ensure the future of the school. This would
look into areas of advertising, reasons for transferring of
students, and sharing of community resources.
