All School News for March 3 – 9, 2014

CA Steak Dinner

Due to the inclement weather we have had this week which has caused our delivery trucks for food, sound, lighting and more to not be able to reach campus, we are postponing Steak Dinner to April 5, 2014.

This spectacular event in its 25th year relies heavily on our volunteers. In order to uphold our history of success, we have decided to move Steak Dinner to Saturday, April 5, 2014.;

This will ensure our volunteers and suppliers safe and timely delivery of supplies and give full prep time for all aspects of the event.

If there are questions or concerns regarding the change in date, please contact Sally Allen at We look forward to seeing you there! Thank you!
