Thank you to our 2019 Eloquence Day Sponsors!

We are grateful to our community sponsors for their help in continuing this great 5th Grade Tradition!  Every year our 5th graders visit the "Cafe de Eloquence" and practice their manners while eating a formal dinner with their classmates.  A lot of work goes into this day and would not be possibly without generous support.  Thank you to everyone who contributed their time and resources!

Our Sponsors this year are listed below and we thank them again for their help!
