The Cheat Sheet

News & Events

Thanks to donors like you, Now&Forever has now raised more than $6 million to build a sustainable way of funding our schools! That’s 95 percent of our goal, with only $350,000 left to raise! We’re working this summer to get to the finish line. If you haven’t yet donated, make your pledge today.

Add the Cheat Sheet to the home screen of your mobile device!
On an iPhone, click on the action button (it looks like a rectangle with an arrow coming out of it). From the menu, select "Add to Home Screen." When prompted, name the page "Cheat Sheet" and it will appear as an app on your home screen. On an android device, click on the menu and select "Add to home screen."

The Cheat Sheet lists a limited number of events that we think will be of interest to many people in our community. We don’t list everything that’s happening, and that’s kind of the point. For more information, you may want to consult the calendars on these other sites:
