As the subvention from the Dutch government stops in January 2017 it's now really time to start fundraising to keep a healthy financial situation even though the school has been obliged to raise tuition for the last 3 school years.
Our parents in San Diego came with the idea to sell flower bulbs (typical Dutch). One parent in North Hollywood has a flower bulb company called Dutch Grown
so this was a wonderful fit. Each student will sell these tulip bulbs and hopefully we will raise a nice amount of money. Parents also set up a booth at a close by shopping center and made promotion for the school by selling the tulip bulbs. There was a lot of interest.
