How to Help
Volunteering and Donations
As a public charter school, Springwater receives only 80% of the State School Fund. As a result, we operate with less funds than traditional public schools, so Springwater relies on fundraising efforts to help cover its basic operational costs. Volunteering is also a huge help, and we ask for 100% parent participation. A background check is necessary to volunteer, you can fill out yours here.
We want to give special thanks to Cheryl Hettervig, our Meadowlark level sponsor at the 2023 Auction!
