Great ArtSpectations!

May 13th is Great ArtSpecations VII!  This is CFCI's biggest annual fundraiser. This year we are hoping to raise enough money to increase our technology devices and work toward our one to one initiative.


We're inviting your family to become a family sponsor at $100., for which you get 2 tickets to the artists' and sponsors' reception, 2 tickets to the live and silent art auction, dinner and drinks.  You'll see and be able to bid on great local art and spectacular student art produced with our featured artists and Missy Ritchie, our art guru at CFCI!


Put it in your phone calendar!  May 13, 6:00 p.m., Coastline Convention Center.  If you're interested in becoming a family sponsor, contact Kathy Rettig or Sam DePrisco at krettig@cfci.net, or sdeprisco@cfci.net ASAP, but for your name to be in the program, before April 28.  Thanks so much!

Enrollment Forms went home last week.  Please complete and return to your homeroom teacher by April 7th
