Gym Water Fountain Success! 

Thanks to the generous donations of our parents, our Gym Water Fountain funding goal has been met!  We are installing an upgraded and updated water fountain for our thirsty Dragons! This fountain will provide clean, chilled water through a traditional drinking spout and an eco-friendly bottle refill spout.  Pictures coming soon!
