ABC/25's goal is to support "fostering innovation, creativity, and excellence in the children of District 25." ABC/25 fundraises in a variety of ways, but primarily through membership, Yankee Candle sales, and the Just Move It Challenge. There is no pressure to get involved, but for those who would like more information, please visit the links below:
Each year, the ABC/25 Foundation grants $2500 to all District 25 schools when 25% of the schools families become members. Additionally, teachers across the district have an opportunity to write grants for their classrooms to purchase supplies and materials that help foster a creativity and innovation. At Patton we have benefited significantly from ABC/25 and we greatly appreciate their support.
