Welcome Back! - President's Message

back-to-school.jpgWe hope that you and your families had a pleasant, relaxing and refreshing summer break and that you are ready to tackle the 2015-16 school year with renewed energy and vigor!


Thanks to the continued support of our community, we fully funded our 2014-15 commitment when all of the auction contributions and corporate matching posted in May 2015.  Our funding commitment for this year for all of our “Margin of Excellence” programs is $323,000

As a reminder, we would fully fund our commitment for the year if we received the suggested on donation of $365 per student at registration and the suggested donation for our fall Comet Chase event. If these two events do not fully fund, we need to plan alternative fundraisers throughout the year.  Right now the board is considering the following supplemental fundraisers to close the gap: read-a-thon, spring online auction and a pay-to-play event (i.e. Poker Night) to name a few ideas we are considering. 

In addition, one of our goals as a board is to maximize creative fundraising opportunities so that we are asking families to write fewer checks to the school. One example of this is the “Entertainment Book” App – it costs @$20 and $8 of each purchase comes back to the school. Act now as the event only runs through mid-September.

In the weeks ahead look for more information on programs such as: corporate matching program, securities gifting and grant writing that will also help us close any funding gap.  

We have a great team in place and look forward to continuing to serve our families, our students and our community.

 

Go Comets!

President

Registration Donation Drive

We hope everyone had a great summer!

As we get ready to start the year off, remember to complete your Online Registration at https://www.togeda.com/creekside/

We have committed to covering $323,000 in staff positions and programs for the 2015-2016 school year. The Comet Fund's primary source of funding comes from a per child donation request at registration of $365…….that’s only $1 per day per child! 

Due to strong fundraising, we will only need to raise $296,000 of the program budget this year.  If all families can support fully at registration and our popular Comet Chase, we can meet our goals for this year with no additional fundraisers.
