Free Dress Day

Dear Parents,

This Friday, September 25th is a Free Dress Day. Please keep in mind that every last Friday of every month is a free dress day. :)

Annual Pledge Drive – The Time Is Now

As you already know our Annual Giving Campaign is in full swing and the time to give is now! Remember, we would like 100% participation. Our goal is to raise $325,000. Amazing programs like arts programs, music, enrichments, technology, extra support staff and other basics are in danger of being cut if the goal is not met. We appreciate your great support of our children and our school!!

It is so exciting to know that our 6th annual "Benefit With Friends" is coming back on Wednesday, October 28th from 8:00-10:00 PM at the world famous Comedy Store! We have an amazing lineup of comedians already set to perform and will be adding even more! Confirmed so far - Chris D'elia, Ron Funches, Brent Morin, Rick Glassman, Ben Gleib, and Fortune Feimster. So get your babysitter lined up! Ticket info and website will be up and running soon. All of the proceeds from "Benefit With Friends" go to arts education at our school.
