Wrapping Up in April!

Nearly 50% of Drew families have made a contribution to the 
Family Giving Campaign.  Before you Break Away next week, please make you gift to the year’s campaign so that we can move another step closer to our goal of 100% family participation. 

Why 100%?

100% = The effort and participation we expect from our students

100% = The effort and participation we expect from out teachers

100% = The effort and participation we HOPE For from our families

100% is a lofty goal but is often what it takes to accomplish great things and to continue the tradition of excellence in EVERY way!

Click here to go “Above and Beyond” and make your donation today.
