BE SMART! Support the Arts at Cali was started in the Spring of 2014. Cali parents, teachers, and administrators came together to create a plan of action to broaden the scope of education for our students. While we are grateful to be part of a language immersion school where our students become bilingual and biliterate, we also want our students to have exposure to arts programs, technology education and life skills. BE SMART donations help support a huge variety of activities including zero period band, in-school enrichment classes (STEM, technology, art, nutrition, music, and PE,) after school activities such as Odyssey of the Mind, and also the schoolwide social-emotional program Soul Shoppe.  Every year the list of programs and activities supported by BE SMART continues to grow!

We can still accept donations!
You can set up a one-time or monthly recurring donation via PayPal. All donations are gratefully accepted and every dollar helps us reach our goal. Please remember that we have families at Cali who do not have the means to donate $50 per student, so we are asking all families to contribute what they reasonably can. Donations are tax deductible (EIN 90-0338056).
