The school is graciously asking you to make a gift to Fund-A Need: Support for our 2021-22 operating budget. Opening our school for in-person instruction came with unanticipated costs. The unplanned expenses of operating our school during the pandemic have led to COVID related costs totaling more than $100,000.  As we have all learned from the pandemic, we cannot predict what the future holds. The school must remain prepared for the unanticipated realities created by this pandemic. Your support for the 2021 Fund-a-Need will help us Rock On into the new school year.
