We have been actively working in the school district since 2005 to enhance, enrich and expand educational opportunities for all our students. Since our inception, we have used our status as a not for profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt corporation to raise funds and in-kind contributions that have been returned to the school district in programs and projects benefitting students and early childhood education.
