Field Trips - NOTE - due to COVID we will not be conducting off campus field trips until the health department or state informs us that it is safe to do so. The school has budgeted $500 for each grade to spend on field trips. Sometimes this is eaten up just by transportation costs as charter schools have to pay to rent busses. For each field trip parents will be asked to DONATE a small amount to help subsidize the field trip. You can make a one time donation of $5 for field trips if you prefer. Please make payments in the office and notate "Field Trips" or you can pay online through our Instant Payments portal (coming soon).
Dress Down Days - This is basically our ONLY fundraising activity. Each month students are asked to donate $2 to "Dress Down" meaning they do not have to wear clothing items that conforms to our dress code. We will have 10 Dress Down days, typically the last Friday of the month. You can donate a one time amount of $15 to pay for Dress Down days for the entire year. Please make payments in the office and notate "Dress Down" or you can pay online through our Instant Payments portal (coming soon).
