Budget/Fundraising Allocation

The Withrow Home & School Association works hard to raise money year round.  So how do we allocate these funds?  To name a few, we work hard to bring amazing arts and science education programs to the school, keep the playground in great shape and invest in technology specifically aimed at supporting student achievement.  See more details below:
