Please visit the Web site at: https://npo.justgive.org/jcos and make a donation since you are getting a private school education at a public school.

Kevin Coffey, Complete Spectrum
A 60-minute complimentary workshop to learn how:
To optimize your PERA and Social Security benefits
Your PERA benefits may affect your Social security benefits
To maximize your PERA payout options and which option is best for you
To reduce your taxes during your golden years
For each participant 18 years or older, the Open School will receive $20.
These are great ways to raise money and the PTSO wanted to encourage anyone that is willing to coordinate an event. Chipolte is extremely generous and PTSO could sell Chipolte gift cards to benefit both from using them to purchase food, plus the 20% Chipolte gives back to the school. PTSO just needs someone willing to coordinate the event. If interested, please contact a PTSO board member.Restaurant Fundraisers
