The above photo, featuring the 2019-2020 board members, was taken at our annual casino-themed event, which successfully took place in February 2020 -- just weeks before the state went into its "safer at home" status. We feel incredibly fortunate that we were able to host our event safely before the world changed.  We are working hard to keep our annual tradition going with an adapted event on March 13, 2021. Please help us make this event just as festive, fun and successful from the comfort and safety of your home.  You can even invite friends and family from anywhere in the world to purchase tickets and support your schools! Let's prove that we can come together as a community even if we can't do it physically. Tickets and more information are available here.

Leveling the Playing Field is the 2020-2021 campaign to raise funds to support a large scale, enduring project to create inclusive playgrounds at Stormonth Elementary and Bayside Middle for children of all abilities.

Please help us bring these changes to our community. Because of your generous support last year, we have already raised $60,000 toward our goal of $100,000. We are so close, and we are hopeful that the district can break ground in summer 2021.
