Building Blocks

Building Blocks is a critical source of funding for long term improvements to our school. Just as the name suggests, Building Blocks helps strengthen our foundational needs by providing additional dollars in much needed places.

These funds have been instrumental in providing our school with new investments in technology, playground equipment, classroom libraries, filtered water bottle fillers, and the campus fencing along Runnymede to name a few.

A committee comprised of teachers from each grade level and a PTA representative determine critical projects and vote on how the money is distributed.

Building Blocks is Selwyn’s annual capital campaign where 100% of your donations goes toward school improvements and educational resources.

Building Blocks funds longer-term improvements for the school such as technology, classroom libraries, and playground equipment.

Red Ribbon Reading funds the yearly PTA operating budget. The dollars collected through RRR allows the PTA to celebrate our students through many school and community events.

The 2022 campaign will run February 1 through February 28, 2022. We welcome donations anytime, including prior to December 31, 2021 if you wish to donate early for tax purposes.

Any amount is appreciated and every dollar counts! In past years, we have raised as much as $120,000.
