Dining Out Thank You

Thank you to all families that participated in one of our recent fundraising dining out nights. We raised $185 at Home Run Inn Pizza and $200 at Kirkwood Bar & Grill. Thank you to these neighborhood restaurants for supporting Agassiz! These dining out evenings are a great way to enjoy the company of other Agassiz friends, as well as patronize local businesses. Be on the lookout for more dining out fundraising nights in 2017!


Barnes and Nobel Bookfair | Friday, December 3rd | Webster and Clybourn


We are still looking for a few people to help make the event a success. If you are able to volunteer, please sign up at:
