Dear Bagby Families,
Welcome back to a new school year, and if you are new to Bagby, welcome to an amazing school and community! The Bagby Home & School Club is a parent and teacher organization that supports the school and its’ students. By donations of money and volunteer time, the Home & School Club makes possible many extra-curricular activities that are not funded by the Cambrian school district. These include Field Trips, Assemblies, the Art Vistas (bringing art into the classroom), Mileage Club running club, Variety Show and Accelerated Reading program incentives. The Home & School Club also helps pay for additional technology, software subscriptions, library services and classroom supplies.
These programs all rely on your donations. The Annual Giving Campaign is held at the start of each school year to ensure funding for all planned activities for the year. This is the ONLY time in this school year that the Home & School Club will ask you for a direct donation. Our goal this year is $55,000. Please give what you can – there is no “right” amount, and we realize that our school community has families with a wide range of incomes. However, if you are able, we suggest a donation of $250 per student.
Because the Bagby Home & School Club is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) entity under the umbrella of the Cambrian Education Foundation, your donation is tax-deductible. The Home & School Club will provide a receipt for your tax records. In addition, many local employers such as Apple, Intel, Intuit, Oracle, Cisco, eBay, Google, NVidia, and many others will match employee contributions. Please note the Tax ID 77-0448212 is for the Cambrian Education Foundation, NOT Bagby Elementary School. If you are unsure whether your employer has a company matching program, please ask your Human Resources department. Last year, company matching funds resulted in an additional $15,000 to help our students! The Home & School Club budget can be viewed at www.cambriansd.org/bagby/hsc. Currently the Home & School club spends more than $250 per student per year.
To donate, please fill out the attached envelope, include your donation (cash or a check made out to Bagby Home & School Club) and turn it in to your child’s teacher or the school office. You can also donate online at www.cambriansd.org/bagby/hsc on the Giving Campaign page.
If you have any questions, please contact Rachael Wegener at firstname.lastname@example.org !
Thanks & Best Regards,
