Hello Short Avenue Elementary families!
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! As many of you know, the Annual Giving Drive is by far our largest fundraiser for the entire school year. There are no gimmicks, no wrapping paper or candy to buy; we are simply asking you to donate what you can to help make Short Avenue the best it can be for our children. Every dollar counts and every penny donated is put right back into our children’s education. It is this community of families and friends that makes Short Avenue a caring and dynamic environment and a solid foundation for our children to learn, grow and flourish in education, connection, and community.
What's the Annual Giving Drive goal?
This year, our Annual Giving Drive goal is to raise $50,000 with 100% participation from our Short Avenue community. Whether you can give $5 or $5,000, we want our families to know we are in this together. We are a Title 1 School, so giving what you can for those who cannot is important, gracious and appreciated beyond words. It benefits ALL our children, and your donation is 100% tax deductible.
Where does the money go?
These are just a few of the programs funded by FoSA. By contributing any dollar amount you can, you are helping to make a difference in our children's future.
Planet Bravo - $28,500 Teacher Aides - $24,000
Spanish Music Program - $20,000 Two Field trip buses per grade - $7,000
How much should I give?
Below are the suggested dollar amounts that the nearby schools are requesting per child:
Coeur d’Alene - $1,250; Walgrove - $1,200; Mar Vista - $1,200; Beethoven - $1500
We are asking each family to consider a donation of $750 per child + $250 for each sibling; however, any amount is welcomed.
Thank you for your support and your involvement! Here’s to a wonderful year!
