Race for Education

The Race for Education is Back!!

In 2007, we launched a very successful fundraising program called the Race for Education. It is an annual tradition for the students, faculty and others to walk or jog around a designated area of the school to honor the funds we’ve raised to add more STEM-based technology into our classrooms. Through the years, funds have been used to improve the school’s security system; enhance the media center and classroom libraries; and even send a student-built satellite into space! This year’s proceeds will be used to upgrade the microphone system to wireless in the gym and putting additional iPads, laptops and other STEM-based technology resources into the classroom directly for student use.

STEM-based education is the wave of our children’s futures … come be a part of it!


Each family will send out personalized donation pages via PledgeStar to raise funds this year.
