It’s been another positive week as our Fundraising Silo has now topped the $800,000 mark thanks to several personal donations and a generous local business donation, to be announced at a later date. Presently the goal of $1 Million is in site – a total of $813,120 has been raised.

It’s not too late to join in and help them make the final push to get our total to $1 million for our fundraising campaign. Payments can be made in cash, check or by credit card. Donations can be made over a 3-year period also which allows families and businesses to spread the pledge out over time. They have also had people pledge an amount that they will give upon receipt of their tax refund or some in our farming community have pledged to donate late next fall or early winter towards the end of the year. Information can be found at the district website, including donor levels and methods of giving. If you would like to donate you can do it online via the school website: or contact the Superintendent’s office at 937/692-5174.
