Who decides where the money is spent?

You do!  The board, staff and principal then put together a budget and parents have the final vote. Come to our next Parent meeting to help make a difference. View our Events Schedule for a list of upcoming meetings.

 

Where does the money come from?

Our funding comes from your generous donations at the beginning of the year.  We have various fundraising events over the school year including Eagle March, our Annual Auction held in the spring, Color Run, and Conference Week Activities.
