Fundraising

Fundraising Activities

Generally, fundraising is done in September and October each school year. This way we can use the money for something fun and needed during your child's school year with us. We ask that you consider purchasing an Attractions Dining Guide, sent home during Meet the Teacher day. This $20 purchase is filled with over $4000 in coupons for area restaurants, events, stores and activities in the local area. Our school receives  back $10 for each book sold. We also do a gift wrap fundraiser immediately after the Attraction Dining Guide. Finally, Claire's Gourment offers yummy treats that arrive frozen in time for the holidays! These three fundraisers will cover additional expenses on the playground and for equipment needs. Over the past few years we've been able to add a shade canopy, new picnic tables, playground equipment, trikes, indoor lunch tables, P.E. equipment, and teacher resources. For 2012-2013 we purchased a concrete pad around the basketball hoop, and a concrete trike trail on the big playground. Additional money raised this year and next will help pay for our security system installed in the summer 2013. For 2013-2014 we added a trike garage on the big playground, the fire alarm system, new swings and swing chains, swing mats, and a few tons of new gravel for the playgrounds. For 2015-2016 we added a shade canopy to the big playground and replaced the chain link fence. Last year, 2016-2017 we raised a record amount to pay for new doors with security glass!  This year we'll be raising money for a new fence for the little playground, and new toys for the little playground.

We raise funds to help support a preschool in Jamaica. These impoverished children live in the mountains outside Montego Bay and cannot afford preschool. Two years ago our school supported 33 students- our school parents paying the $65 annual tuition for an individual student. In 2016 we sent a teacher to college in Montego Bay- parents helped fund her classes and books! We have also hosted spirit nights at the local Chick-fil-A restaurant and have been able to purchase security bars for the school's windows and doors. We have taken them teaching supplies, books and puzzles in December 2012-2016. One family's donation has purchased fencing around the school.  We raised funds in 2014 to have the facility painted (we supplied the paint and local preschool parents did the work!). In Dec 2013 and we provided a CD player, music, puppets, 3 storage cabinets, a bookshelf and Christmas gifts for every child. We did a Christmas party in Dec 2014 and gave the teachers a computer.

In March of 2015 Mrs. Frasz spent a week at the school assisting with teaching and discovered many needs within the local families and community. In April we brought a preschool teacher to Virginia- and she spent 11 days with our staff, learning and being 'loved on' by staff and school families alike!  For the 2015 Christmas party we invited Christian singer/songwriter, Mary Rice Hopkins and puppeteer, Darcie Maze for the annual party. We put on a concert for the entire preschool and local elementary school. We gave each family a bag with goodies for each person in the family, and Santa passed out sweet treats.

We ask that you support our spirit nights, not only to have a night out without doing dishes...but to support these little ones and their teachers who have so little in the way of educational and financial support. Please buy a Chick-fil-A calendar.  Consider supporting a little one's tuition ($85 for 2017) or helping to purchase Christmas gifts for the children by finding sale summer clothing in sizes 4-6x for boys and girls. You could also assist with Sheryl Gardner's college tuition for this school year-2017.  If you are interested in learning more about it, please contact Mrs. Frasz.
