fundraising tree

The PAC annual fundraising campaign has begun and so far we have received 126 donations. This represents a 26% participation rate in the campaign–a very good start!  Our goal is 100% participation of Maple Grove school families–every donation, regardless of amount, counts.

Every one of these donations is being celebrated on our new donor wall–thank you to all those who have sent in their donations!  The money the PAC raises is essential to supporting every classroom and student at the school. If you have not already done so, we invite you to drop off your donation in PAC mailbox at the school office.  And please be sure to view our tree located by the main stairway near the office and watch it grow new leaves!
