Our IB program is only partially funded by the district, so survives on help from parents and community. Based on funding requests to support IB teacher training and a new IB Mathmatics textbook adoption, we've increased this year's fundraising goal to $25,000. Our ONLY fundraiser of the year is our Gala, and we really need your help to make it a success.

Thank you all so much for your support. Let’s make this our best Gala ever!

The Gala

The Gala is Parent Connect's main fundraiser. We spend many hours planning this event. We are collecting silent auction items — anything from gift card and services provided to a romantic vacation. Your help in soliciting donations is essential to make this evening a success. This year's Gala will be our best yet!


Silent Auction


The silent auction raises funds to provide support to the teachers and students in the School of IS.

At last year's event we raised $20,000 and were able to fund the teacher wish list, provide monetary support to all groups attending the college trip and provide scholarships for IB testing. In addition, we have provided assistance with classroom supplies for this year's new teachers.
