We currently looking for volunteers to host/organize a spring event to close the “Tuition Gap”- likely to be online due to Covid. We have several parents who can help and mentor this project. Please let Mrs. Gabrish know if you are up to the task!

Update on our event results From this event!
Our Mardi Gras – Sweepstakes event at Cantoro’s was well attended February 8th – about 190 in attendance! All of the numbers are not in yet but it was certainly a success and will likely bring in almost $31,000 to help close the tuition gap.
We are grateful to the team of parent volunteers that worked very hard to create this wonderful evening – Ann Kenyon, Dina Karim, Lisa Collias, Cyndy Marsh, Samantha Wren (and husband Andrew!), Roseanne Diponio, Erica Cusick, Christine Roe, Melanie Maas, Martina Nakash, Nelda Shunyia, and Lori Zoulek. Special thank you also to Monica Logan for her Summer Bash table!
The committee worked hard on donation acquisition and were able to exceed last year’s auction by $2,000 but the participation for the Sweepstakes Raffle fell short with only 56% of the families selling all tickets. Fundraising is not easy but a necessary part of education – public or private.
