DENALI PTSA would like to offer a special thank you this year to the amazing, the fantastic, the superb: Mr. Eddy! Mr. Eddy has made dozens, maybe hundreds of face masks for Denali staff – and refused any compensation for them.  As a thank you, staff have made a comparable donation to Denali PTSA. So far, over $300 has been donated in Mr. Eddy’s honor. (October 1, 2020)
