Thank you to lowes and the pto
In the Fall of 2012, a grant from Lowes was approved for the purchase of a set of covered tables in the quad area. Lowes gave us a grant towards the project. Then the PTO kicked in a “matching grant. Finally after much anticipation, the tables arrived. I’m sure the students have enjoyed a little shade and covered protection.
