There is an easy way to help raise money for our school- for books, band uniforms, reading programs and anything else that can use extra funding!  It’s called the Take Charge of Education program sponsored by Target.

Here’s how it works: Click Here or call 1-800-316-6142 to designate our school, then use your REDcard whenever you shop.  When you use your REDcard (Target Credit Card, Target Debit Card or Target Visa Credit Card), Target will donate up to 1% of your purchases to the eligible K-12 school that you designated.

You can learn more about REDcard at or stop in a Target store to apply.

Grandparents, alumni, friends and neighbors are all welcome to participate in the program.  The more people we involve, the harder the program works for our school.  If you’re already participating, thank you!  Check our schools progress anytime at
