Idaho Gives is coming up: Thursday, May 4th -- Every year people across our state come together for great causes in Idaho. Palouse Prairie Charter School is one of them! Help raise money for our school by marking your calendar and making a gift on May 4th!
You can help bring amazing learning experiences to the kids. Every donation counts - even the small ones.
$5 - If we can get 100% participation in giving from our school families, it helps make a compelling case when we're applying for grants. Please consider a gift of even $5 to join the 100% Club.
$25 - Sponsor an Adventure Day for one student and help him or her learn grit and tenacity.
$50 - Ensure that every student can participate in our overnight Adventures, regardless of family resources.
$100 - Help fund transportation for field work and Adventures to get our kids safely to these amazing experiences.
Your choice - support Palouse Prairie's Adventure Program in any amount and make a difference for our kids.
Your donations through Idaho Gives can also help us win cash prizes, getting us even closer to funding this incredible program. So share this page with your friends and family on May 4th and ask them to give even just $5 to give kids these experiences that will shape their lives.
May 26th will be our make up snow day. There will be school, buses and lunch that day!

Kenworthy Opera for Kids: We are delighted to announce that the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre is offering a unique summer experience for students in Grades 7-12. Kenworthy Opera for Kids will explore the stories, artistry, and music of opera. The 3-hour sessions over four days, June 12-15, will feature interactive lessons and culminate in a Metropolitan Opera Live in HD encore presentation of The Daughter of the Regiment (La Fille du Regiment). The Kenworthy website provides more detailed information: www.kenworthy.org/opera-for-kids. The application deadline for the workshop is May 15th. Scholarships will be available for students who are concerned about the cost.
