It HAPPENED! We slimed Ms. Gamboa!


One child from each grade was chosen at random, along with Ms. Morlock, to dump slime on Ms. Gamboa this past Friday.




Thank you to all of you - our awesome community that made this happen!

Thank you to our volunteers, especially Leah Odette, our Fundraising chairperson, who made all of this happen.

AND a BIG THANK YOU to our awesome Principal, Ms. Gamboa, who was such a sport!
