On Feb. 9, 2015 Phillips students who were top sellers from PTA’s fall fundraiser were invited to a Magic Show in the school gymnasium. Before the show began Phillips Library Associate, Heidi Ellefson was presented with a $5,000.00 check! This was possible only because of the determination of our students and families to make this fund raiser such a huge success. Thank you to our PTA for all they do to support our school and students!
