Greeting Shaw Community,
The deadline for the Arizona Tax Credit is quickly approaching. This opportunity expires on April 15th.
Our school uses this money in specific ways to fund the highly desirable opportunities we want for our children.
For the preschool, kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades this means that your tax credit dollars SOLELY fund the outdoor environments. The ODE is not critical to the function of a school or district but is critical to the quality Montessori experience your child receives for FREE!
For the 3rd through 8th grades your tax credit is used to fund the “big trips” that (your) our students enjoy unless you designate them otherwise. The ODE is not critical to the function of a school or district but is critical to the quality Montessori experience your child receives for FREE!
Our outdoor environment tax credit collection is currently at $10,104.00. We need additional revenue of $14,896.00 to keep the garden and outdoor environment open through December of 2020.
Please consider donating your tax credit today. Aunts, uncles, grandparents and friends can also donate if they are Arizona residents.
Donations are accepted in the school office or on line at https://phxschools.org/district/about/tax-credit/
Thank you for your support.
All the best,
CONGRATULATIONS Xharia Washington!
