Annual Fund Contest Winners!

Congratulations to the following classes, who have earned a party in the Science Lab or outdoor classroom for having the highest percentage of student participation in our Annual Fund Drive (based on number of students who contributed, not dollars contributed):

Ms. Hanna and Ms. Rodgers classes will make their very own ice cream in an additional visit to the Science Lab!

Ms. Himmelberg’s class will build and shoot off rockets using Coke and Mentos!

Ms. Golden’s class will “leave their mark” on Garrison Mill, by painting two of our picnic tables behind the school!

Our donations are down almost 30% this year to date.  If you have not yet contributed, please do so by clicking on the Donate Now button to the right of the screen, so that we can continue to fund programs that will provide tailored educational enrichment for all of our students!
