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. Zero period music (band and chorus) and Wheel Day activities (including STEM, drama, computers, art, nutrition, and PE) are possible at Cali because of BE SMART!
Our campaign to cover the costs for 2017/18 is happening now. We’re asking for a donation of $50 per student.  Without the financial support of the Cali community, these programs would not be possible.  Please return donations by May 1, 2017. Families can return just one payment (check or cash) in one envelope or donate online by clicking on the image below.
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).
