This year you can help us create a safe, eco-friendly, artificial turf sports & play area for our students at the Upper Campus. We all believe that time outdoors with movement, play and exercise is a critical piece of a child’s development, at every age.


You can participate in a variety of ways. We encourage all guests to give in a way that is meaningful to them. To donate items or learn about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Helen Kissler.
