Fundraising for PoDS

Perhaps our most meaningful traditions at PoDS are our off-site, multi-day adventures. COVID has prevented these trips from happening over the past couple of years, but we're hopeful to bring them back, perhaps this spring, but definitely for next school year. Our hope is to have a series of escalating experiences that culminate in mind-blowing trips for our juniors (and hopefully seniors). These trips, obviously, will come with a significant cost.


In an effort to keep costs down for families, we have historically had fundraisers here at school, but again, COVID has prevented these. Now, we're gearing up for three major fundraisers this year:


>ChicoBags - This fundraiser is ready to get up and running! See all of the details below, but we need everyone to share this with family and friends. It's a product with a great reputation, and we get 40% of all sales!


>Candlelight Hike/Snowshoe/Ski - In January, we'll be hosting an event for the community to learn more about, and support, PoDS. Students will obtain pledges and families can come to school for a beautiful winter evening candlelight hike/shoe/ski. We'll have food for sale here at school to also help raise funds.


>Plates for PoDS - This late-April event has been a huge success in the past! A local chef will prepare a spectacular formal meal for guests. We will also hold a silent auction that evening.


These fundraisers are absolutely essential in order for us to provide our students with the adventures unique to our school. They reduce costs for all families and provide all students with an opportunity to participate. But we need your help in order to make them successful, so please go above and beyond to help these fundraisers be as successful as possible!
