We’re Giving Thanks To YOU!

Thank you to all who participated in our Thanksgiving Fundraiser! We filled over 100 orders and reached our goal!

The Winter Online Marketplace is Almost Here!

Our Winter Online Marketplace runs Dec. 7-14. We’re all trying to support our communities this holiday season and one way is by shopping the Winter Online Marketplace. Do some holiday shopping in your comfy clothes and get great gifts while supporting our school programs for years to come. You’ll find

  • Gift cards to local shops and restaurants
  • Unique gift baskets
  • Toys
  • Teacher Experiences for your student
  • SO MUCH MORE!!! 

Contact us at with questions and watch for communications with the marketplace link.

Announcing New Sponsors!

We’re excited to announce our newest Auction Sponsors – Bronze Partner Sponsor Cascadia Kid’s Dentistry, and Partner Sponsor Nielsen RE Group. Thank you for supporting our students!

We cannot achieve our fundraising goals without Sponsors helping to offset costs. Are you interested in this great way to advertise your business while serving our school community? Sponsorships start at as little as $250.
