As in most private schools, tuition covers a portion of what it costs to educate a student at Prairie Hill. Each year, with the gift of their time and talents, parents organize a number of successful fundraising events to support their children’s education. We all share the responsibility for securing the needed financial resources to support the school. The following fundraisers take place each year:
The Annual Appeal is a year long campaign that raises funds to cover the gap between the cost of tuition and the cost of educating each child. Prairie Hill asks for 100% parent participation in the Annual Appeal, which is important when seeking grants and outside funding.
Each November, the school is transformed with a bounty of music, arts and crafts, and food into a Medieval Village. All Prairie Hill families participate in the Faire by making and donating crafts and baked goods as well as volunteering their time for staffing the Faire. This is a celebration eagerly anticipated each year by Prairie Hill students, families and the outer community.
Donated goods and services are auctioned off to the highest bidder in both silent and live auction. The Prairie Hill community and their guests enjoy food, entertainment, games, camaraderie, laughter, and friendly competition at this themed event.
Art and craft materials, books, natural health and body care products, as well as many wonderful toys are available at our School Store. Purchasing these delightful items for family and friends can help the school reach its financial goals. For more School Store information, click here.
Prairie Hill is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible.
