Thank you PTO !
Thank you to our wonderful Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) for the generous donation to assist us with purchasing projectors for classroom use. Many of our mounted projectors are 7 to 8 years old and have begun to fail. Without financial assistance from our PTO, three classrooms would have gone without a projector this school year. Thank you to our PTO members for making a difference to the Battlefield student body!
