Fundraising:
Tuition covers only a fraction of our operating expenses, in order that we may keep student costs the lowest in the area. The rest is funded by grants, donations and our fundraisers. Therefore, all Fanfare families are expected to participate in our fundraisers or pay an activity fee. Plans for fundraising for the 2020-21 school year are being modified in view of the COVID-19 environment and will be communicated to parents as soon as available. At that time, parents will have choice of participating in fundraising or paying an activity fee.
