Support MSD’s Special Events

Raise your paddles at MSD’s Auction!

The auction supports MSD’s Annual Fund while our Paddle Raise goes to a specific project, such as Outdoor Learning Environments.

The Auction and Paddle Raise support our students, staff, and school. Our community bands together for the biggest fundraiser of the year. Before the dancing starts, we raise our paddles to support a new initiative, which has funded three buses, Urban Farm, professional development, and outdoor learning spaces. We hope you join us in raising our paddles high to continue enhancing MSD’s spaces and environments so our community continues learning and growing.

Join the Read-A-Thon movement! #read4MSD


MSD’s goal is to have every student read, be read to, or practice building literacy skills for at least 20 minutes every day, especially during Read-A-Thon. Teachers and families love seeing their students read, and in-class reading, audiobooks, podcasts, and read-along systems all count! Students received a handy reading log, and they can also track online.

Read-A-Thon supports Tuition Adjustment funding. Businesses, individuals, and families are needed to help make this possible! Sponsors received their name or logo on our website, social media, souvenir bookmarks, signage, and special recognition in MSD’s community updates.

With over 200 families and 300 students, your generosity makes our dynamic education accessible to more families.


Cheer on MSD with a fun run!

The Fun Run experience is a fitness fundraiser that kicks off with a high-energy Pep Rally. The Pep Rally “Huddles” will be led by our amazing Middle School student leaders.

Students gather pledges from family and friends, near and far. Instead of selling something, your child gathers pledges from friends and family for each lap that your child runs at the Fun Run.

Plus, it’s 100% inclusive and no child is left out. Fun Run funds go right back to helping MSD be the best it can be by supporting Technology in the classroom.


Auction Paddle Raise

While funds raised from MSD’s annual Auction go to support our Annual Fund every year, the paddle raise is always restricted to a specific project. In 2022, we raised funds for a campus-wide improvement project, where our Primary, Elementary and Middle School students received new playground equipment, thanks to our generous paddle raise donors.

2021: Improved Outdoor Learning Spaces
