PTO PROVIDES NEW FUN OUT OF OLD STUFF – We want to thank the El Dorado Springs School Board for supporting us, and having patience with us, through this endeavor. A special thank you to Mark Koca for being an early, very vocal supporter for getting this project rolling.
Special thanks to the admins, school maintenance, and Optimist Club members who installed this gargantuan piece of equipment.
We would also like to thank all the parents, teachers and students who have supported PTO fundraisers and activities! We wouldn’t be us without all of you!
