The Firebird Gala

Why do we host an Annual Firebird Gala?

The Annual Firebird Gala is one of the most exciting events of the year. This evening of dining, dancing and auctioneering is the one time that all of our parents gather to celebrate the community they have built. You can and should invite your friends and other family members to this event (Yes, grandparents and your neighbors are welcome to attend!). Palm Valley is a unique independent private school, and our approach to individualized education is worth sharing with our larger community.

Many families own businesses or have connections to local businesses, who then donate goods and services for us to auction off during our silent auction. Each purchase goes directly to our Gala Fund, which is dedicated to campus improvements and often have a long-term capital improvement goal. Recent projects funded from the Gala include: new security fencing on campus, The Nest, our Sports Van and the new Lower School family gathering spot.

In order to better plan for our Gala, and not waste resources, we have introduced Early Bird Pricing! To reserve your spot at the Firebird Gala at a reduced price, click here now. Ticket prices will absolutely increase after December of this year.

Registration will open soon!

Other Ways to Give

The Annual Fund

Every independent school has an Annual Fund. It is an essential part of keeping independent schools alive in the modern world.

Grandparents Who Give

Grandparents have a special relationship with grandchildren. Among the most important relationships we have, the love that grandchildren share with their grandparents is profound. Free from the pressure to raise and provide for a family, grandparents often give the quiet nurturing and special attention that children need.

Monthly Supporters Club

Join our Monthly Supporters Club, where for only a dollar per day, you can help Palm Valley reach its goal of 100% participation.

School Sound Updates

Every morning, we hold a school assembly at the Lower School. During this time, our students make the important announcements for the day. We are teaching them public speaking, leadership and poise. The kids are not letting us down, but our sound equipment is letting them down.

The Great Tuition Raffle

Outside of winning the lottery, Palm Valley’s Free Tuition Raffle is one of the most exciting raffles a person can enter. Parents (or grandparents) can purchase tickets on behalf of a student.
