  • Fundraising:

Our Parent Committee has always raised funds to both support enhanced activities for our program, to purchase big-ticket items, and to send our staff to large ECE conferences that are far away.  Additionally, the committee created an annual event, The Teachers Appreciation Day that they ensure the funds are there each year for the continuity of this special day to celebrate the team.  There is a staff  meeting on the 21st which the team will discuss PD and conferences and will inform the committee of any large PD plans for 2016 2017.  Tonights group brought up the dream purchase of the Community Playthings Outlast Blocks and the concept of this purchase was re-visited.  We decided to inquire of a local builder if he would be able to replicate these products and the response will be share at the next meeting. 

Current Fundraising Activities:   

We are currently fundraising with Lovable Labels.  --- 20% of the purchased amount goes to the committee and 80% goes to Lovable Labels.  We also have the information for Mom’s Pantry and are launching this campaign at the beginning of November.
