Fall 2016-2017 Go Fund Me

IMG_7184Here it is folks, a new fundraising site for the upcoming school year. Did I mention we are taking a trip to the Bahamas? Just kidding. But we do have 3 official students now, as well as a PreK draw-a-holic that needs her own paper budget. In addition, Vegas has been invited to join the PYCO, and there are some hefty fees that go along with the orchestra. {no more than a year of private lessons, but it seems like a large cost up front.}

So, that is why this years fundraiser is double last year, an attempt to offset the cost of his orchestra fee. 🙂 No Bahamas.

A baby, but no Bahamas.

In the last post, I included a spreadsheet of school books and supplies that we are hoping to use next year, along with prices, so you can get a feel for what it looks like, even on a small-scale with little to no electives to purchase books for a family of students. Oregon has many benefits for a non traditional schooling setup like ours, but no state funding for educational materials outside of public school. We can’t just turn in our receipts and get a refund. If we were to enroll in a charter school or some sort of web academy, we may get a budget for supplies, but they would all belong to the state, and would have to be approved. Not my cup of tea.

Sometimes we are able to find our books used on amazon, which is fantastic, and cuts the cost down, and sometimes our other supplies are found at the goodwill or SCRAP, which also helps.

If you are able to help out even with the cost of one book, that is a huge help to us in our present situation. Thank you for taking the time to read and tolerate my yearly fundraising plea.
