Adventure Dash kickoff is Wednesday, Dec 6th

Adventure Dash is a 10 day fundraiser that will benefit the Gleason PTO. Our goal this year is to raise the remaining funds needed to build a cover over the outdoor hardtop. This would allow students to have protective, shaded playtime on rainy or hot days.

Students can earn personal, classroom and grade level incentives based on funds raised. Click here for more details on prizes and for directions on how to support Adventure Dash.

Dash Day is Friday, Dec 15th during large group time.
