To our Sundance Wildcat Families,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! Please join our annual Red Envelope Campaign where 100% of your donation goes to ensuring the best education possible for our Wildcats. We are proud to limit our contribution request to $200 per student while providing the maximum benefit possible for our students.

The Foundation can’t provide for our students without your help. This one request supports both the Foundation and the Parent Activities Committee for the full year, providing funding for staffing, supplies and community-building events all year long. If this is financially challenging for your family, please reach out to the Foundation to coordinate a monthly payment or consider donating your time as a volunteer. This amount is only suggested and all donations, big or small, are greatly appreciated!
