Why do we need to fundraise?


Many parents ask this as they get started in the public school system--especially with all the property taxes we pay each year. Funding for schools does a good job of covering our buildings, teacher salaries, administration, books and other necessities, but lost in that are some much-needed enrichment programs and community-building activities that make the overall learning environment what it needs to be for all of our kids. In order to provide this overall learning environment, we must raise funds--but fundraising is not our mission. The funds we receive are put to use for student programs, teacher resources, family-focused activities and school improvements.

Clip box tops from 100's of your favorite brands. Send Box Tops to school. Our school earns 10 cents for each Box Top.

Throughout the year we will host Spirit Nights at local restaurants, where you can support the school with your food purchases. Check back frequently to learn when our next spirit night will take place.
