Thank You!

The 2022 Annual Benefit: An Evening with heART was a huge success! After months of planning by a dedicated Benefit Committee and fearless chairs Jim and Carol Burg, our fundraising goal for the event was not only met, but exceeded by 27% and was the highest grossing Benefit in several years. Thank you to all who supported the evening by giving items, volunteering, attending the event, or making a donation–the evening’s achievement is thanks to you!

As the largest single fundraiser of the school year, the proceeds from the Benefit support our mission and allow us to invest in operations to ensure a clean and safe environment for all students, technology, professional development for faculty and staff, and facility improvements. It also means we can move forward with plans to secure a therapy dog, who after training, will be on campus as early as next fall, and to build two new classrooms and bathrooms for our growing Primary school.
