GRATITUDE CORNER - BACCHUS FUNDRAISER

Thank you so very much to everyone who helped to make our Bacchus Wine Tasting Event a successful and fun night -- it was so nice to see so many of you there. The appetizers were delicious, and there was wine aplenty! Together, we sold 52 tickets - close to selling out - which brought in $1560. All our our auction items sold and brought in $3375. In total (*give or take) $4935 (*surpassing our $3800 goal by $1155!)

We're very grateful to Quinton and Katie Jay (husband/wife owners of Bacchus) for generously donating the event space, complimentary first glass of bubbly and 2 huge plates of cheese and 2 amazing auction items. Without donations from many of our supporters, the event would not have been such a great success. Kudos to the Development Team, with efforts lead by Jackie Hsu and Kellanie Scott.

SPRING PHOTOS

Sheila will be offering photo sessions the last couple of weeks of April.  Stay tuned for sign-up sheet. Class photos will also be April 29-May 3.

PRIMARY FUNDRAISER - ONGOING

The seasons are changing, and you know what that means - new clothes for your ever-growing child! If you are looking for brightly colored, durable basics, check out www.primary.com/school/littlewonders, and enter code LITTLEWONDERS. You get a discount on your first purchase, and Little Wonders gets a percentage back from your order - what’s not to love?

CORPORATE MATCHING

Considering making a charitable contribution to Little Wonders? Check to see whether your employer has a corporate matching program! (TIP: Google does, and many others do too!) Every little donation+match makes a HUGE difference to the programs we are able to offer our families. Plus, donations to Little Wonders are tax deductible!

REGISTRATION OPENS SUNDAY

Registration for Summer and Fall starts on April 1 and will be open through April 30. Some Pre-Registration roles and Board positions are still available. A perk for anyone taking on a Pre-Reg Job or Board position is that you get the class of your choice rather than going into the lottery. Check out the Pre-Reg jobs here, and Board positions here. When you see something that interests you, contact jobs@littlewonders.org or director@littlewonders.org and we will put you in touch with the person currently in that role to find out more.  

CO-OP JOB COMPLETION FORM

As the school year is coming to a close, now is the time to fill out the co-op job completion form.  We use the feedback to improve each school job; assess the number of hours each job takes; and accurately describe each job on our website so that next year’s families have clear pictures of each position. The co-op job completion form is very brief and will take about 3 minutes to complete.  Please click the link below to go to the form website (or copy and paste the link into your internet browser):
