University-Ravenna Cooperative Preschool : Wreath

Our major fundraiser of the year is the Annual Wreath Sale. We sell greenery items during the month of October and then deliver them around Seattle at the end of November.

University-Ravenna Cooperative Preschool : Logo T-shirt

We also have a School Gear Shop where you can buy merchandise like t-shirts, sweatshirts, mugs, and bags that have our preschool logo and art. A small portion of the sales price goes back to our school.

University-Ravenna Cooperative Preschool : Amazon Smile

We also raise money through Amazon Smile. Shop there anytime you’re purchasing on Amazon, and they’ll donate a small portion of the sales price to our school. It doesn’t cost you anything, but it can add up to a lot for us!

Next on the Orientation Tour, we provide an overview of our Health and Safety policies – including co-op rules for illness, snack safety guidelines, procedures for blood borne pathogens and bodily fluids, and parent to-dos before the school year starts.
