Every year, the Benefit Board of North Shore community sponsors a special evening to bring the community together while raising valuable funds for the School to support teaching and learning. The effort is led by parent volunteers on our Benefit Board. This year, The Purple Wave 2017 was held on February 25.  The theme, "Experience NSCDS," included teacher demonstrations of how our student learn-by-doing. The event was very successful and raised $150,000, including $56,000 from the emotional appeal to support the maker mindset.
