We are so excited to announce our partnership with KidGooRoo.

Finally, a fundraiser where you don’t have to buy anything, volunteer or attend an event!

You review a local gym or program your child attends and KidGooRoo donates. That’s it! And when you do, you are automatically entered to win a free Chromebook.

Here are a few highlights:
• KidGooRoo donates money to our school for every review written by our parents
• We are raising money for field trips.
• When you write a review, you are automatically entered to WIN A FREE CHROMEBOOK!*

Our goal is for every parent to write at least one review.
