Last school year was our second donations only fundraiser. Thanks to our supportive and generous Kemp families, it was again like the first year an incredible success! We also have received such positive responses and encouragement, so we will be continuing this campaign again. Of course, the more who participate, the more we succeed. The PTA is optimistic we will reach our new goals! Below is a list of what can be expected for this year's fundraising. 
  • Fundraising dates are August 26 - September 23 2016 
  • 100% of funds raised will stay at Kemp to be used for student enrichment 
  • Tax deductible 
  • Payment plan available (see donation envelope) 

    This year our prizes are in line with our school MISSION- Learn, Lead, Excel and BE AWESOME TODAY! We have chosen to give out keychain tags that your children will love. Each child will receive the first keychain just by being a student at Kemp and the rest of the collectible "Superhero" tags are based on the donation amounts. We will award the students with a school wide pizza party, 
    If we reach our fundraising goals of $20,000.
