During our first Grand Opening Celebration, our Auction Committee asked for guests to submit some 1980s favorites as entries to win one of three book prizes. We had some fantastically nostalgic responses!
Scholastic “Children’s Dictionary”: Kelly J. , Preschool Parent
“Dinosaurs and More”: Lucy M., 4th grader
“Picture Books and Pigeons”: Bethany S., Kindergarten Parent
Thank you to everyone who came and helped us celebrate. We had a great day, filled with pride for our elementary students. The Elementary’s Water.Org Fundraiser was an enormous success. The students raised over $4400 to help women and children obtain safe access to drinking water. The Water.Org foundation states that for every $25 raised, they are able to provide safe, sanitary water to an individual in need. So many of our students and families brought a large amount of attention and passion for the cause to our community. Thank you for helping raise awareness for the cause.
As we continue to celebrate our move to 1980 N. Gary Avenue, please count on joining us! Our End-of-Year Gala and Silent Auction this year is 1980s-themed, in honor of our new address. Be sure to “like” the page on Facebook to see all of the donated items, announcements, and sneak peeks of the fun in store for guests!
