Thank You 2018 Pick.Click.Give Donors!

This week Four Valleys Community School received a check of $3900 from donations via Pick.Click.Give donors. We are grateful for the contributions of locals who value community education, and the programs that we offer locally. We exist today because of people like you who support us and choose to give a part of their Permanent Fund Dividend to help us keep on doing what we do best:  providing enriching opportunities for the residents of Girdwood, Indian, Bird & Portage. Thank you for your support!

To join in supporting FVCS through Pick.Click.Give, select us when you file for your 2019 Permanent Fund Dividend. It is an easy and great way to “share the wealth” through charitable giving, and your funds will stay right here in Girdwood to support our community education programs.

Apply for your PFD from January 1 to March 31st, 2019 and select “Four Valleys Community School” in the drop down menu. To learn more, go to www.pickclickgive.org.

FREE Family Fun Night November 7th: Brain Science Through the Art of Juggling!

Free family fun! Mr. Mag is returning to the Girdwood K-8 School! Your child may remember him from last year when he taught all of us new and challenging juggling skills and activities. Mag is an engaging, inspirational, and FUN educator. He is coming to share his knowledge about brain science and learning through the art of juggling. He is magic with kids–capturing their attention with his big personality, encouraging manner, and goofy-yet-genius teaching methods.

Mag will be working with individual grades during the day, and then we will be having a Family Fun Night from 6-7:30p in the Girdwood School Gym. Wear your gym shoes, and get ready to laugh and learn with your family. All ages, all family members, and all fun!
Sponsored by Four Valleys Community School and the Girdwood K-8 PTA.

“New Kid” Performance by University of Alaska Students

The Girdwood K-8 School had the University of Alaska come down to Girdwood to present a play that addresses acceptance, anti-bullying, immigration, racism, tolerance, conflict resolution, and social emotional learning. FVCS is proud to be a co-fund this event along with the Girdwood K-8 School and the Girdwood School PTA.  Your donations help us to sponsor these important enriching events for our local school and youth. Thank you!

Donor Spotlight: The Libby Group

We want to say a big “Thank You” to our friends at The Libby Group who came down to Girdwood to support us with a donation and a friendly game of dodge ball with 20 middle-schoolers!  The Libby Group is a dental office in Anchorage who believes in community outreach in support of healthy and active lifestyles. We are thrilled they chose Four Valleys Community School to support through a cash donation, and their contribution will be used to make some much needed equipment purchases for  youth programs!

An additional “Thank You” to Alex at Spoonline and Spike at Chair 5 for donating some lovely finger foods and pizza for our donor event. We really appreciate the local support we receive from engaged businesses like theirs!
