This year in lieu of hosting an online auction gala - Plant a Party, we are shifting our focus toward the cultivation of our community with Plant a Picnic. Our enrolled families are invited to join one of a myriad of picnics that will be offered around the city to enjoy some activities and the company of fellow classmates. We will additionally host an evening zoom to share some student work, enjoy the annual slide-show, administer the raffle, and host the live donation of our fund-a-need. While the focus will be on connection, we still have crucial fundraising goals for this special event.
