Thank you, San Gabriel students and families, for a record-breaking Kick-A-Thon with a grand total of $34,925.64 and 67% participation!  This ensures that we can fund all our field trips, assemblies, and fun activities for next year. Such fantastic fundraising also allows us to make additional investments and gifts to our school.  Over the past years, PTA has purchased new and much needed stage lights, microphones and stage monitor speakers, and storage shed for our school. We are so lucky and thankful to support our school.  There were so many close contests and ties this year and every class raised at least $1,000 that we just want to applaud everyone’s outstanding efforts. Way to go!
