Annual Fund Highlights - Week 5
Mon, Oct 4 1:12pm

We have reached 83% of our goal of $200,000 with 71% families participating! Thanks to the team work of our Thornhill parent community, we have gone above and beyond what we thought was possible in only five weeks! We have also set a record for highest family participation - beating the 2019-20 record of 62%. Nice work, Thunderbirds!

We still need to raise $33,000 to reach our goal of $200,000 to maintain PFC funded classes and staff - Ms. Fox our Librarian, Pope our Drumming and Dance teacher, Coach Johnson our PE teacher, Ms. Alexis our Gardening Teacher, SIX Teaching Assistants and much more! 

If you haven’t had a chance to contribute, making a one time donation or setting up an installment plan is a breeze via our donation page! (6% of participating families have chosen installment plans) Does your company offer matching gifts? (8% of our total raised is from company matches) With each donation we receive, we become all that much closer to our goal!

In the meantime, we will be working diligently to get you your Thornhill swag! As a reminder:

Donations of any amount, at any time will receive a Thornhill Frisbee!

Early birds who donated by September 30th also receive a Thornhill Trucker Hat!

If your company doubled your donation, you’ll also receive a Thornhill Car Magnet!

And now for the highly anticipated popsicle party results.  The enthusiasm from EACH class was absolutely outstanding. Thanks to the teachers, room parents and families who made it a close and exciting race! Congratulations to Ms. Steimle (K), Ms. Finnell (K) and Mr. Thompson (TK)!  We will be contacting you today to plan your party.
