Hello Beverly Cleary families,

The 2022 Fun Run was a huge success.  Our students had a great time and collectively ran over 1200 miles!    We are so close to our $25,000 goal and are still accepting donations here. Please visit the info page for details on turning in points sheets and prizes. Thanks to Marie Westom and Sara Hallvik for organizing this fun event.  Read on for more news you can use.
