It takes $395 per student to fund enrichment programs such as music and garden, science camp, reading specialists, and supplies to support our classrooms. That’s about $40 per month. In this period of unprecedented uncertainty, it is more important than ever that we come together to support all our students. 

If $395 isn’t in your budget, please consider giving what you can. Every dollar helps support all of our students. Many employers offer matching funds, doubling your contribution! Grandparents and friends can also contribute in your child’s name for a meaningful holiday or birthday gift.
