Let's finish the year strong with a final Annual Giving challenge! 

What is it?

We are doing a "challenge grant".  If we meet our goal, Open School will receive an additional bonus of at least $4,000!  Our goal is met by EITHER:

  • $10,000 in total new donations
  • 100 new donors participating with a donation of any amount (a new donor is any family or extended family that has not yet donated this school year)

This year our Readathon was as spectacular as ever!

The Twisted Tales theme intrigued the minds of students and teachers alike. A resounding shout out goes to Shana Aelony and Pamela Evans for all of their hard work and creativity as the Chairs of this event.

Shana and Pam, a huge thank you to both you and your entire Readathon Committee, for continuously sparking the love of reading in the hearts and minds of all of our youngsters.

This is what happens when Open School yet again shows up!  What a great time, huh?  Like all successful events, this is only because of the hard work and generosity of so many parent volunteers.  Not only did we have 60 people signed up to help, but then even more parents would stroll up to the kitchen and offer to put on an apron and help.  When an event gets that kind of support, it’s a certain success.
