You (Firethorne) have provided us with numerous monetary and human resources over the past several months to make our school a great place.”
Ricks and Kovar noted how the Wolman community appreciates Firethorne’s support, from staff members monitoring the bounce houses at the student orientation, to contributing to the school’s beautiful electronic marquee, which is a wonderful communication tool, and landscaping.
