Fundraising is an important source of funds for Providence and brings many valuable extras for our children. Providences offers many types of fundraisers, including:
Founders Day Bash and Silent Auction
This fundraiser has a carnival-like atmosphere with games, prizes, great food and silent auction. Each classroom helps with the silent auction items by creating a specific themed basket. Although, it is a fundraising event, the Founder’s Day Bash has become a major social occasion that everyone enjoys.
This event is so much fun for our families, we forget it is fundraiser! Each year, around Valentine’s Day, members of the entire school come together to enjoy a smorgasbord of breakfast foods which have been provided by the families. This is great opportunity for parents, children, and staff to spend time together outside of the classroom. All proceeds from the event go the school.
Community Rewards works when you link your Kroger Plus Card to the Kroger website and a percentage of your spending becomes earnings for Providence! Easy as pie. Speaking of pie, go buy one at Kroger! 🙂 Make sure to re-enroll every August at www.krogercommunityrewards.com

Box Tops for Education
We also participate in the “Box Tops for Education” program. Providence earns cash for every Box Top collected – it all adds up! Collect and bring them to the office!
Each Spring, Providence hosts ‘ProvROCKS’ …. a fun evening for adults with drinks, appetizers and a live auction. All proceeds raised at the event go to the school.
The school offers clothing, bags, umbrellas, bumper stickers and license plates with the Providence logo.

- Main lobby renovation

- New playground equipment and recycled rubber mulch
