Annual Giving Campaign – Donate by November 12, 2021
Sunday, October 18, 2020 - Thursday, November 12, 2020
For over 20 years the school has been offering a children-centered, holistic educational experience for children in the heart of Reno, NV. We could not have done this without the amazing support of parents and others who have nurtured the school along for all these years. The school is now at a threshold with a capital campaign being kicked off to buy a property so that the school can continue to do this work into the future. The board and faculty are entering into this process because there is strong support and demand for the program in the Truckee Meadows area from parents. We are confident that this will continue and that the school will continue growing into the future.
At the same time, we must continue the educational program and we must not lose sight of the work that goes on every day. This is the purpose of the Annual Giving Campaign. The Campaign helps support the children and teachers by strengthening the general fund and enables the school to offer programming which can not be funded through fees. Through the generous giving of parents, we are able to offer programs like music lessons and movement classes as well as sending teachers for training and upgrading the facilities, including classrooms. We believe that the community is at the heart of the school and that our strength lies in the commitment and generosity of parents and others.
We Need Your Help
This year’s campaign goal of $25,000 will help fund many aspects of our school including teacher training and facility needs. We understand that some families have experienced financial challenges. Regardless of the amount you can donate, we ask that you contribute to the Annual Giving Campaign as your participation is crucial. Please consider giving to the campaign to the best of your ability and know that your generosity will go towards supporting the educational experience of the children.

There’s Still Time to Give
This year’s fundraising goal of $25,000 will help support the following:
- Teacher Training: Our teachers are the pillars of our school. Without them and their willingness to give of themselves, we would not have a school. Unlike many other private schools that have experienced teacher attrition, we have been blessed that each of our lead teachers has returned this year. This year approximately 2.5% of our budget, $25,000, will go towards teacher training and continuing education. Currently, we have 4 fully trained teachers and 3 on the path of becoming fully trained. It is money well spent which serves to enrich our children’s education.
- Facility Needs: When we add a first-grade class every year or open a new program, we are puzzled over how best to accommodate them. Until we secure a larger facility, we have implemented creative solutions like room dividers, built or taken down walls and cubbies, moved fences, and all manner of changes to extend our capacity to accommodate our growth. This type of facility work, along with the facility needs that emerge throughout the school year, takes financial resources to accomplish.
- General Fund: Donations to the general fund support the current year’s operating expenses.
Thank You For Your Support!
