SCHOOL FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES…
Fundraising is a necessary component of a not-for-profit school. And at Morning Star School there are many ways to get involved and make a difference. Each year our devoted parents, grandparents, supporters and community of friends come together to help us raise needed funds that help us supplement the budget, perform maintenance to our buildings, provide enhancements to our classrooms as well as purchase up-to-date educational tools and enrichment programs. These contributions are immeasurable in how they support the mission of our school and are a worthy model of stewardship for us all. Listed below are many ways you can help us raise money.

Our annual Gala & Auction “A Night on The St. Johns” is held at the beautiful Haskell Building in Riverside. Last year’s event was a huge success for our school!

It’s an evening not to be missed! Attendees have the opportunity to purchase a reserved table and select from many sponsorship packages.

“I’m really a fast learner. I always was, which is maybe why in high school they didn’t realize I had dyslexia. I skipped years without studying too much. [The dyslexia] doesn’t bother me now. Some people read really fast, but you’ll ask them questions about the script and they’ll forget. I take a long time to read a script, but I read it only once.”
