The Annual Pasta Supper/Silent Auction is our major annual fundraiser. It typically raises $15,000 – $20,000 for the school each year! It takes the students, teachers, and parents to make it happen. We have live entertainment, pasta dinner, raffle, and Silent Auction. The Silent Auction includes items and services generously donated by parents, teachers, and various local businesses. It is a great night for the whole family so mark your calendar now. This years Pasta Supper will be Monday, March 7th 2016 from 5:30 – 8:00pm.

UPCOMING CAPITAL PROJECTS

*A sunshade for the playground—increase the shaded areas of the playground to make sure our kids stay protected from the sun during warmer months

*A new Nature Center—over the next few years, we would like to transform our underused concrete courtyard into a year round outdoor classroom the children can enjoy. This will be a place of hands-on-learning, teaching children about sustainability, healthy living, and an appreciation of the natural world, with directed lessons about food, nature, science, water, and recycling. This will also be an additional green space for the children to simply play and explore the outdoors.
