Fundraising Information

A common complaint at other schools is “there are too many fundraisers!?”. Dad’s Club agrees. While fundraising is an important Dad’s Club goal (because Paden needs money 🙂), we don’t want to gouge or annoy people with constant “asking for money”. Instead we sell moderately-priced food at Family Fun Nights, aiming to provide a tasty and nutritious meal for a family of 4 at $20-$30 (which seems reasonable). Hopefully people see the food as a convenience and fair exchange, versus the school trying to get donations from them.

Money raised goes directly back to the school, supporting programs such as 5th Grade Science Camp, Music for Kindergarteners, and other programs designated by Mr. Sarratore. For transparency, below is a list of money raised this year.
