Fund-A-Need Updates: Sound System Gets Rocking and Books are in the Hands of Kids
Every year at our annual auction we raise the paddle to fund a special project for our school, such as the new playground, classroom libraries, the Earth Project and technology.
Here are updates on the two still in progress and a big thank you to our community for making it all possible.
2017 Sound System: Last year’s rock stars raised over $12,000 to fund a new sounds system for our stage to replace the blown speakers and non-working microphones so student performances and guest speakers could be heard. After working through the bid process and figuring out all the details, a purchase order has been submitted and installation will start soon. Rock on!
2016 Literacy Book Room: Our 2016 auction superheros made it possible to help fund a book room that includes book sets that whole classes can use, as well as smaller book sets that groups of 4-8 readers can use in literature circle groups. Teachers have been busy ordering books and they are steadily coming in and getting into the hands of students.
