As of October 14th, we have received just under $50,000 of the $75,000 goal.
Grade levels are now competing for the highest number of envelopes returned to win a popsicle party for the entire grade level. This contest is based on returned pledge packets, not total donations. Take a look at the above graphic to see the current standing for each grade.
The new due date for the GRADE-LEVEL competition is:
THIS Wednesday, October 16
Why do we need $75,000?
At this point, we can almost pay for book orders that vendors are holding aside for Cali Calmécac classrooms! The first $30,000 will go towards PTA programs and school support (yay!) and now the funds are going straight to building classroom libraries. We will be sure to take pictures of all the books that come in once we are able to buy them.
