Each year, the Foundation will distribute funds from the endowment earnings. School requests for funds will be reviewed by the Foundation Board and grants will then be awarded for school programs. Grants have been given for books and supplies for the library, classroom art projects and supplies, Spanish Immersion, classroom art projects and supplies, band equipment, field trips, various enrichment assemblies, STEM grants, the Dance Residency and more.

SweetArt Gala 2021 On-line Auction

This year for the first time in 20 years we had to cancel the SweetArt Gala and move to an on-line auction. We are grateful to our sponsors, community and school for supporting us and allowing us to continue our work to support Continental School. The on-line auction was a great success!

SweetArt Gala
