Earth Balloon Fundraiser

The Division Street School STEM Lab is a committee comprised of teachers, parents, Dr. Miller, and district-level STEM education leadership.  Last year, the committee identified the goal of obtaining an Earth Balloon to increase educational opportunities for the students at Division Street Elementary, and the Division Street School PTA led the fundraising effort to make this happen.

To date, the Ad-Hoc Earth Balloon Committee has raised approximately $2,100 from friends and family members of Division Street School in 2016. In 2017, we have received donations from the following: Stewart's ($2,000), Saratoga Hospital ($250), the Saratoga Springs Police PBA ($200), Albany Information Technology Group ($500), Informz ($2,500), Today's Options ($500), Rotary Club of saratoga Springs ($250), Bonacio Construction ($250), Adirondack Trust Company ($250), Allerdice Building Supply ($100), AYCO Charitable Foundation ($2,250), Science Street Labs/Name Bubbles ($7,000), Isa Prak Samphy-Hong ($500), The Person-Sheinkin Family ($500), Beth Braxton ($25), Anthony Catalano ($250), The Vogel Family ($200), Sheila Vanacore ($50), The Cicardi Family ($50), The Brown Family ($50), The Covell Family ($50), The Goodman Family ($25), The Bern Family ($50), The Kirchherr Family ($50), Bryanna Andrews ($200), Erica Klippel ($65), The Rosan Family ($50), Nadja Todorovic ($65), Nafeeza Koslik ($65), The Manuele Family ($150), and The Isenovski Family ($300).  

We are extremely grateful to these community partners, as they have helped us to reach our goal!  The committee held a Gala fundraiser February 10th to help to raise funds and awareness to the cause. At The Saratoga Music Hall we held our "Around the World in 8 Dances" Earth Lab Gala, for adults only. Food, drinks (cash bar), and music were provided. Thank you to our sponsors in-kind: The Inn at Saratoga, Saratoga Arms, and Arthur Murray Dance Company!  The Arthur Murray Dance Company will provide us with 8 dances from around the world on the stage, and a mystery staff member from Division Street has accepted a challenge from the PTA President to a Karaoke Battle.
