  • We are glad that the One Mil tax passed for regular Alachua County Schools. Unfortunately, the County does not share any of these funds with Charter Schools, so we still need your continued support to fund our Music, Art, Drama & Dance programs. We thank you for your continued support. If you have not made arrangements for your “Fair Share” donation, please let us know your plans.
  • Also, your students have been doing great work in the consumable newspapers & workbooks which belong to them for home and school use. If you have not yet paid your child’s class consumable fees, please bring them to your classroom teacher.
