ABC/ 25: The all-volunteer, non-profit organization created to raise funds for innovative projects and programs benefiting all District 25 students. Funds are raised in three ways: the Just Move It fun run, the Yankee Candle sale, and the membership drive going on now. ABC/25 has funded numerous projects such as a climbing wall in the gym, iPod Touches, iBooks, Chromebooks, lighting improvement for fine art, garden initiatives and many more. Our school will receive $2500 in incentive grant money if 25% of our families and staff join and $5000 if 50% of our families join! This money will go directly to enhance the education of our Ivy Hill students! Go to the Foundation’s website, to register. You can pay on-line or send a check in your child’s backpack. Make sure anything you send via your child’s backpack is clearly labeled “ ABC/ 25 Membership.” Questions? Contact Archana Shukla (
