Bonus Bucks Program

Bonus Bucks benefits each division to fund professional development. It supports teachers attending conferences and workshops or participating in other profesional development opportunities. This fundraiser directly and positively impacts your student’s experience in the classroom. 

Additionally, Bonus Bucks can be used to purchase something innovative for all students, which fall outside of the typical budget items. For example, USN would love to have a set of large foam construction blocks for Lower School and AFTER-SCHOOL use. They are amazing but also expensive, the perfect Bonus Bucks purchase!
Thanks to your participation, Bonus Bucks earned over $7,500 in 2016- 2017!
