The 2021 Cash Party will be held virtually this year on March 20. More information coming soon.

The Cash Party is our biggest fundraiser of the year to allow us to provide mini-grants to teachers - like this one for Mrs. Chalupa at Dawson. Through our fundraising efforts, Scholastic News magazine was purchased through an Ed Foundation grant for Mrs. Chalupa’s fifth-graders. The students enjoy reading about current events.

We hope you can support us this year with our mission to fund 100% of teacher mini-grants. Watch for more details and some photos of our great prize packages - coming soon!
