  • Is donating required?
    NOT required. We provide enrichments for all students agnostic of parent involvement or donation. We will provide statistics and suggestions to help parents decide how much is reasonable to donate. While donating is optional, so are the enrichments we provide. In order to continue supporting the staff and programs we currently do, we must hit our annual fundraising goals. More information on donating can be found here.
