MBEF Annual Appeal Ends in 7 Days

PLEASE DONATE OR PLEDGE BY 2/15 Grand View's participation is currently at 83%. If you have not already done so, please consider donating to MBEF so we can continue to keep class sizes small and retain the staff that we’ve come to rely on: our librarian, our reading and science specialists, and our PE teacher. Classes that reach 75-94% participation will receive $200 in classroom supplies and those that reach 95% and above will receive $250 in supplies to use this year. Congrats to Brancato, Crum, Fairbrother, Farris, Guelff, Pliaconis, and Robertson families for reaching 95% and higher! Click for classroom participation stats as of 2/7.

You can pledge now and pay by June 20, 2015: mbef.org/givetoday
