Weekly eNews: September 13, 2018

Dear FIRSTNAME,

 

I hope you have had a chance to view the Parent Annual Fund mailer that should have arrived this week. The money raised by the PAF goes to programs and initiatives that directly benefit your children. Everything from security, to new technology, to hands-on science equipment, to new musical instruments, is funded in part by this important program. The theme this year, MOMENTUM, is very fitting given the trajectory of the PAF. Last year, six of our 14 grades reached 100% participation, a very exciting new record. I have no doubt that the promise of a pizza and cupcake party had something to do with it--and I also have no doubt we will surpass that number this year--but, the big question is … which grade will be first? 
 
We are striving to provide your children with the best educational experience possible. Those of you who have already supported the PAF have our heartfelt thanks. For those of you who, for whatever reason, have not supported this initiative, I ask you to consider doing so at a level you feel most comfortable. Our ultimate goal is 100% participation. Each of you can help make that a reality. You can click here to support the Parent Annual Fund.

  

Sincerely,

 

Art Raimo
President
