Fall Fundraiser: Phon-a-Thon Campaign – November

Annual gifts made at Phone-a-Thon provide needed resources to support student learning by matching critical educational needs of the school district with the generosity of our donors who are passionate about excellence in our public schools.

Contributions are used annually for identified and prioritized funding needs for students and their teachers across the district. Donations provide exciting new, relevant classroom curriculum and materials, staff development and provide programs for struggling students that are considered essential to ensuring that all students meet or exceed district, state and federal standards for success.
