KIVA Project is a fundraiser that the senior students put on for the entire school. Various food items and games etc. will be set up throughout the school on June 3 from 10:45am -2:30pm. Order forms have been sent home with all of the students outlining what will be available for purchase this year. Please return these forms by May 26. Students in grade 1-3 should return their forms with the exact amount of money attached. Students in grades 4-8 need to return their forms only and bring their money on the day of the event.
