Another year at Painted Rock with our Panther Family is right around the corner, and the Painted Rock Foundation welcomes you! From time to time, you will receive this blog to keep you updated on the programs and services we are funding at our school. Our blog will also provide information on the fundraisers happening throughout the year so you can determine how and when your family wishes to participate. The Foundation is a 501c3 organization with a board of volunteer parents and staff. We determine what is to be funded by listening to YOU! We also work with our staff on an ongoing basis to determine what needs are not being funded by the district or the state and we FUNDRAISE our hearts out to fill those gaps. Our goal is simple: to enhance the educational experience of every student at Painted Rock.

Our 2015-2016 252 Annual Fund Campaign is currently underway and we are off to an INCREDIBLE START! Thank you to all who have already donated - past and present. This year, our goal for the 252 Annual Fund is to raise approximately $50,000, which makes up almost HALF of our annual budget. So, please consider making a tax-deductible donation. We will continue to offer a 10-month payment schedule — that's $25.20 per month — so we all can help make Painted Rock an extraordinary school! Any and all donations are greatly appreciated. Oh, and don't forget to check to see if your employer will match your donation.

In case you missed it during registration, you can find our 252 flyer online and in the school office with further information on how to donate. Our Foundation website also provides information on what we fund.

Thanks to the generous support of our exceptional families and corporate sponsors, we are excited to share that we will have a new science teacher on staff this year, bringing science instruction into every classroom as a part of our new STEM program. Painted Rock's STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) program will be curriculum-based by grade level and include all aspects of science, including computer science. Stay tuned for more information about our new science teacher and STEM program in our next blog!
