Soaring Start to Annual Fund 2016-2017
CAIS parent volunteers (and children) launched the Annual Fund with “Smile Style” this morning. Annual Fund Co-Chairs Allana Helland, Helene Kocher, and Andrew Owen were joined by Class Captains Claudia Choy and Hanna Wang and Head of School Jeff Bissell to welcome families arriving at the Alice A. Carnes Center and 150 Oak Campus. We even deputized the children of Annual Fund Co-Chairs and Class Captains to help pass out stickers. Spirits were as buoyant as the balloon arches!
Our goal is to repeat the 100% participation achieved last year. We are thrilled to report that we’re at 17% participation out of the gate, thanks to parent pledges during the re-enrollment process last spring. We are likewise proud to report that we’re at 63% participation already among teachers and staff!
Annual Fund Co-Chairs have mailed material to families in their respective divisions, so keep an eye on your mailbox for details. Class captains will be getting in touch personally in the coming weeks. We’ll also be sharing links for electronic giving in CAIS Notices next Monday.
In the meantime, enjoy scenes from the morning kickoff! (password-protected gallery for parents)
Co-Chair Michelle Stauffer will be welcoming middle school families at 888 when they return from Outdoor Ed next Monday morning.
