Q: Why are these called “Greet and Give” parties?
A: These festive parties hosted by fellow Bill Roberts families are a great way to get to know (GREET) fellow BR families. The events are no cost to you, but we encourage folks to donate (GIVE) whatever you can.
Q: Why do we need to raise money?
A: While we do get money from the school district, there are some things that are funded by donations from our amazing families…things like paras, SMARTLab materials and specials (like art, drama, music and PE).
Q: Is there a minimum to donate?
A: No! Some donate what they’d spend on a night out, some donate monthly, some donate hundreds, some give whatever amount they can. EVERY donation, no matter the size, helps keep our school great.
Q: What if I want to donate a bit at a time?
A: You can! In fact, this is a popular way to give. You can visit our website anytime (or do it at a party) and donate any amount monthly.
Q: What if I want to give $2/day for my child’s education?
A: That’s $29/month! Yep, 174 days of school times $2 divided by 12 months = $29
A: For the September 14th party, look for the evite link in Thursday Notes and on the BR website in the “Support” section under “Events” and “Greet and Give”. The Bouncy Party on September 29the is on the BR Facebook page. No need to RSVP for either, but it does help us plan!
Some families feel like Bill Roberts provides a public school education that’s reminiscent of a private school, but not for the same price tag! On average, a private school education in Denver is at least $10,000-$15,000/year.
Come join us at these parties to mix and mingle and celebrate this fabulous school. If you can donate when you’re there, great! It’s at your discretion, but remember that EVERY amount helps. No donation is too small and none is too big.
Please join us to see what a great community we are and celebrate our children’s fantastic education. THANK YOU!
