Our current goals for additional campus safety and security upgrades total around $275,000. We plan to raise these funds initially through fundraising and ongoing through an annual Facilities Fee. We are currently doing research, talking to other schools, vetting companies, and soliciting bids on various projects, including upgraded locking systems, additional perimeter fencing, and additional surveillance. We welcome feedback and suggestions you may have around measures to implement and/or any leads on vendors we could vet.
Our hope is that those of you in support of our safety and security goals will help us to raise money in one or more of the following ways:
Donate an item or service to our silent auction (click here
to do so)
Help solicit donations for the auction
Purchase auction items for yourself or as gifts
Buy tickets for you and your friends (or sponsor a teacher!) to Casino Night on April 8 (click here
Donate an item in kind, such as alcoholic beverages for the bar
Make a financial donation in the form of a check, Venmo to @Athena-Montessori (or ask Joy to add an amount to your Brightwheel account)
Help spread the word for Casino Night!
I am grateful for your continued and unwavering support over the years, and I am so excited to gather in community with you again in April!
