Hello all! Here we are 5 weeks into this school year! Earlier this month we distributed the Underwood Foundation’s Financial Summary and Welcome Back Thank You Letter from Board President, Stephen Mangano. Your donations funded the equivalent of TWO full time teachers at Underwood, plus more – making a direct impact on the school and our children’s education.
Who says college basketball is the only March Madness in town? Not Underwood! This month we have our own March madness with two exciting events – one for adults only and the other a family event!
Join us March 23 for the Underwood Foundation Spring Gala – this is a can't miss event where all proceeds go to supporting our teachers and keeping things like our art program in tact! How often can a night on the town support your children's school? The evening provides a great way to meet other Underwood parents and faculty all while enjoying fabulous food, music and a silent auction! Get your tickets today at www.underwoodfoundation.org And remember – when you give our children get!
And be sure to bring the whole family to Artsplosure March 27th to see the art program at its best! See you donations hard at work while you marvel at the creations and performances of our Underwood Stars.
