eNewsletter ~ AUGUST 2016

As I hope you have noticed by your daily e-mails and signage on campus, we are in the midst of this year's All IN IN 10 ELCA Fund Campaign.  This campaign serves as our designated 10-day period for our families to provide support to our school over and above tuition and fees.  The cost of providing all the opportunities for our students is not covered by just tuition and fees, so all donations received make a significant impact on the education of our students.  We are off to a great start to this year's campaign, so if you have not yet made your gift or pledge, please do so either on-line at www.elcaonline.org/give or by picking up a contribution form at Mrs. Vicki's desk in the front lobby (including the option of billing your student account through FACTS).  Additional information on the ELCA Fund may be found at www.elcaonline.org/fundvideo.  Please make your donation today as we strive for 100% participation from our families during the campaign.
