DID YOU KNOW…
All profits directly benefit every student at Short Avenue while also supporting the library. Our library needs major resources. More than half of our library collection is considered aged (with most books 30-40 years old) and prior to 2014 more than $25,000 in books were lost. We are 38% under the recommended amount of books for elementary school students. Every Book Fair purchase helps our students and our school!

Giving Tuesday was a Success!

Thanks to generous donors and passionate supporters spreading the word online, the Friends of Short Avenue booster club set an inaugural record. On Tuesday, November 27, 2018, FoSA raised more than $1,100! We raised $710 in direct donations and we hope to get $425 matched for a total of $1,135. See if your company will match and we could triple the donation.

If you missed the chance to give to Short Avenue on #GivingTuesday or you are still inspired to support our mission of helping students lead full and productive elementary school educational experiences by providing enrichment opportunities that strengthen and support academic growth, inspire creative understanding and integrate technology in cultivating the whole child, please make a donation today. When you donate through the PayPal Giving Fund, there are no processing fees – plus PayPal will match 1% of gifts made through December 31, 2018. That means 101% of your gift will go to the our school!

Thank you for your support on #GivingTuesday and your continued support throughout the year!
