A Special Message to Our Park Families Todd Auskalnis, father of one of our 5th grade students, passed away unexpectedly from a brain aneurysm just before winter break. He was only 43 years old and leaves behind his wife, Jodi, and their son, Joshua. The family is trying to raise money for Jodi and Joshua, so they can rebuild their lives over the next few months and get back on their feet. However, given the circumstances, finances will continue to be an ongoing concern for the family. Please consider helping the Auskalnis family during this very difficult time. You can learn more about their situation and donate at: http://www.gofundme.com/toddauskalnis. Thank you!

Park Campus has earned over $9000 to date! You can check our balance on the card posted at each checkout or online at target.com/tcoe. Thank you cardholders!
