Dear Families-Read on for the News
School Pictures - No show again!
Hello from the PPCS Development Committee!
Dear Fellow Crew Parents,
We would like to introduce ourselves to you as the co-chairs of the Development Committee. We are Willma Fields and Christen Findley, two PPCS Board members who are working moms with kiddos of our own in Palouse Prairie Charter School. We know what it is like to have a busy schedule, many obligations, and more, but we also know how important the sustainability and growth of our school is to our children and the community. That is why we are seeking enthusiastic volunteers to join us on the Development Committee. Now, we know what you’re thinking, you don’t have any spare time to give, and we understand that, which is why we are hoping for a full, dynamic team this year, so that we can help spread the load and benefit from a diverse collection of skills, ideas and talents.
The Development Committee has several responsibilities to achieve our mission of supporting the school with grant opportunities, fundraisers, and giving campaigns. Some of our other duties are:
Orchestrating fundraising activities with the Board and Parent Crew
Coordinating grant writing with teachers and school administration
Developing strategies for raising funds for our adventure program and other opportunities for authentic learning
Planning the Winter Celebration with Parent Crew
Launching social media campaigns to raise money for special projects
You might also be thinking: I don't know anything about fundraising, I've never written a grant proposal, and I hate asking for money. Luckily, you do not have to know anything about fundraising or grant writing to join this group! And you will not have to go around asking for money (unless you want to). There are so many ways that your talents and energy can help make our school successful -- please join us!
Please email all interest and questions to either of us at:
