Give and Get

What is it?  Give & Get is a program that supports our school financially and involves parents as volunteers in the school community.  As noted in the Enrollment Agreement, each family has an annual commitment of $2000 which began July 1, 2015 and must be completed by June 30, 2016. Outstanding commitments will be carried over to the following year and are considered a financial obligation to the school.

The Give & Get policy can be found here.
