Community Give Backs

With our students starting off virtual this year, many of our traditional fundraising avenues are on hold until we’re able to come back. We look forward with optimism that we may be able to return to normal sometime this year. In that spirit, we still need to raise money in hopes that we will be able to host events like our popular grade level dances.

Several of our day-to-day shopping choices have options that, for very little effort, will give a percentage of your purchase back to our school. Below are a few “distancing” options to get started.
