Mr & Miss CA

Congratulations to Hunter Galbraith & Evelyn Turner for being named Mr. & Miss. CA.

This convenient option gives families the opportunity to deposit money into an account and this money can be withdrawn for miscellaneous items that are available at the express window or the hot lunch window. Payments can now be made via the new online marketplace!
