Black River Parent Organization Fundraiser

The Parent Organization supports our school in so many ways! The PO purchases books, equipment, classroom improvements and teacher appreciation gift cards. The PO helps pay for programs like The Odyssey of the Mind and Noetics as well as field trips such as Chicago for the Juniors, the Bowling Party for 3rd graders and the 8th Grade Party. And these are just a few! 

In years past, we have held the Fun Walk, Carnival, Rat Fest, etc. to help raise money for the items we need for our school but due to COVID, we have not been able to do any of these. These fundraisers are of great benefit to the school and have raised about $33,000 per year! While many events for our students have not been able to take place this year, we are looking ahead to future years and want to be able to offer the same great events and programs.

Now is the time we need you and your support! We have met as a group and reached out to our school leaders to compile a list of needs and wishes. If you are able to help, follow this link to donate to our fundraiser.
