For more than 50 years, First Presbyterian Day School has been a steadfast leader in Christian education. As the world around us has faced an ever-changing social and political landscape, FPDS’s dedication to providing our students with an academically robust, Biblically-based education has been unwavering. Now, in the midst of a global pandemic, our commitment to our students’ academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical wellbeing resonates louder than ever.
With that being said, prioritizing the health and safety of our families takes precedence. So, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of our beloved annual Holiday Potpourri fundraiser. As this is our school’s only fundraiser, cancelling it was a difficult decision that we did not take lightly. This fundraiser generates more than $200,000 annually, and its revenue has supported such important projects as the development of the preschool program, the building of a state-of-the-art science lab, the library expansion and, most recently, our campus expansion, which will include a new gymnatorium.
However, despite Holiday Potpourri’s cancellation, we optimistically look toward the future and place our trust in the Lord. If you would like to make a tax deductible contribution to FPDS in lieu of the 2020 event, please return a check made payable to “Crusader Club” with the memo line marked “Holiday Potpourri 2020” to the school office.
We thank you for your prayers and support and, most importantly, for investing in future generations.
