Thanks to Mrs. Deanna’s Mommy for this great photo!

VERY IMPORTANT Stuff here folks!

Giving Thanks

I would like to pause for a moment to give thanks for our amazing students, parents who take the time to volunteer, our administration for all of their support, our terrific technical and creative staff, and for Dave — who takes care of our truck & equipment. This is truly a TEAM effort, and I’m proud, and thankful, to be on this team!

Giving Tuesday

This is a NO BRAINER!

You will receive a separate email with instructions today, and again tomorrow.

Here’s the link: https://www.facebook.com/donate/2217327118367479/10214727194922763/

Please share this with EVERYONE — but tell them “PLEASE WAIT to donate until exactly 8am EST tomorrow.”

Facebook will match donations beginning at 8am EST on Tuesday. They will match the first $7.5m in donations, which I would estimate will be gone by 8:05am EST.

If you donate tomorrow your donation MIGHT get doubled.

Is it worth the chance? As I said — No Brainer!

Either way — you will get a tax deduction!!!

Keep an eye on your emails for the detailed instructions from Mrs. Marottolo.
