Track a Thon

From Mr Taff:

Dear LaSalle II Community,

LaSalle II is having a healthy, school-wide fundraiser. The Falcon Track-A-Thon Fundraiser will be held completely on school grounds during school hours. The money raised by this event will go to support the entire LaSalle II community such as sports teams, student council, 8th grade graduation, field trips, foreign language programs and trips, Pre-K music program, and after-school academic support and any other event or need approved by Ms. Albani. These funds will be spent each year so the effects will be felt and seen immediately.
