Bin of water balloons in various pastel colors.

We had excellent weather for our 2nd Annual Water Balloon Toss today on the John Hay playground. Ms. Anderson and Ms. Beaury's Kindergarten class and Ms. Hansen's 3rd grade class both achieved 100% on their envelope returns during this year's Annual Fund and therefore had the opportunity to throw water balloons at Assistant Principal Berkenwald. Many other classes came out to cheer them on and Mr. B got SOAKED! Everyone had a blast! Mr. B even stuck around to finish off the remaining balloons in a distance toss.

Thank you to Samantha Bayne for planning and executing today's ...

What's next? 

We go to work applying for grants and finding donors. The remaining amount will come from fundraising. 

Grant applications are in the works and our first fundraising effort is May 10th with Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG. This is a one-day online giving event...
