You can see how much the Moffet Community has raised below!
Stuck for a Buck! Students taped Mrs. Gomez to the wall which is a good cause in and of itself. But an even better reason was to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society! Click Here to see the video!

Courtesy of our tireless and generous MLK Day volunteers and sponsors, John Moffet School now has four freshly painted stairwells and one freshly cleaned library. 

And Friends of Moffet has a successful inaugural project to help pave the way for the next one. 

Hearty THANKS to:

— Principal Navarro, Mr Ken, Mr Kyle, and the staff of John Moffet School.
