As many of you know, Rising Stars Preschool operates as a non-profit preschool. We are funded solely by tuition, grants, and fundraising opportunities; all of which had been halted by COVID-19. With a shutdown that lasted March 2020 to February 2021 Rising Stars suffered a major financial impact which threatened to close our doors after 17 years serving children and families for good. That’s when the magic and meaning of community came to the rescue! We are humbled by the generosity of our amazing community members, preschool families and businesses who donated funding, to the MCM Fund for gifting our school an immediate donation for operating funds, to the returning and new board/committee members and to our returning/new staff here at Rising Stars! Together we have saved Rising Stars Preschool and are thrilled to open our doors once again beginning Monday, February 22, 2021!
Until the state restrictions have been lifted we will be serving 10 children in each class, in the past we had served 16 per class. Since our tuition income will be much lower we will rely more heavily on fundraising and grants. Please plan to support our fundraisers to assist our school through the school year!
If you would like to donate to Rising Stars Preschool, you may send a tax deductible donation to Rising Stars Preschool, P.O. Box 866, La Pine, OR 97739. You can also donate your cans/bottles to our can drive and/or order pizza through our Little Caesars Pizza Kit Fundraiser running through the month of March!
Thank you for your support,
Rising Stars Preschool
