Christmas Cafe & Gala
What are we Raising Money for?
This year, we are fundraising to expand our Advanced Placement Program and purchase maintenance equipment for our parking lot. Advanced Placement programming offers our high school students the opportunity to take university/college level classes and earn credits before they enter university, giving them a head start as they pursue their chosen career. Additionally, funds raised will go towards the purchase of equipment to improve and maintain our parking lot. As a rapidly growing school, the volume of traffic on the school yard has increased dramatically over the years, and purchasing equipment for parking lot maintenance will help us address problematic areas in a timely fashion.
