Annual Giving Campaign – Donate by November 20, 2020

OUR SEASON OF GIVING: COURAGE, STRENGTH, AND MIGHT!

Our Annual Giving Campaign offers us the opportunity to affirm our mutual affection for our precious school, as well as support our outstanding faculty, administration, and exceptional programs that make us one of the highest quality nursery-8th grade schools in the state of Nevada.

In this season of Michaelmas, we call on our courage, strength, and might to lead us through the upcoming cold and dark winter months. We have affirmed through these past months that we can be flexible yet sturdy, creative, willing to accommodate, as well as be decisive. As faithful or capable as the Faculty, Administrators and Board members may be, they cannot solely support the school. Tuition alone does not fully cover the many and varied needs of our school to help us fulfill our mission.

“… to provide rigorous learning experiences that engage the mind, enliven the imagination, and honor the spiritual development of each child…”

We need your help.

This year’s campaign goal of $20,000 will help fund many aspects of our school including teacher training and facility needs. We understand that some families have experienced financial challenges. For those who can, please give generously. Regardless of the amount you can donate, we ask that you contribute to the Annual Giving Campaign as your participation is crucial. The future will be built upon our present contributions.

Courage. Strength. Might.

These are the qualities readily available to us in this season that can serve to shore up our resolve and bring us together in community, connected and whole, despite this time of physical distancing. As well, in our coming together for a worthy cause, we become greater versions of ourselves.

HELP SUPPORT THIS YEAR’S GOAL OF $20,000

Regardless of the amount you can donate, we ask that you contribute to the annual giving campaign. Your participation is crucial.

PLEASE DONATE BY NOVEMBER 20, 2020

This year’s fundraising goal of $20,000 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!

Advent Spiral | Grades 2-8

Families in our Pre-K & Kindergarten programs and Grades 1-8 program are invited to join us in celebrating the festival of Advent by attending our Spiral. Walking the spiral is symbolic of our journey as humans during the Solstice Season, the darkest time of the year. We walk in outer darkness and journey inward to discover the light that lives in our deepest parts.  We then carry that light back out into the world, each seemingly small light-collecting into a mighty glow.
