A Message from Stacey and Jeffrey Shidler

My name is Stacey Shidler and my husband Jeff and I are chairing the 2018-2019 BYDS Annual Giving Fund (AGF).  BYDS holds a special place in my heart since I am an alumna. We are parents to Daniel in the third grade and Julia in the first grade. They each started here in CDO.

It is very important for our children to have the same early Jewish foundation as I had and believe that instilling Jewish values early is important. Therefore, we must keep on giving. The funds from AGF are here to fill in the gap between school costs and tuition as well as fulfilling our academic pursuits inside and outside the classrooms and expand our extracurricular offerings.

Some examples of funds from the AGF are used for the following:

Educating the Educators…


Learning Specialists…

Jewish Foundation…


Ancillary Teachers and Resources…

Financial Aid…. 

Special Events…

Extracurricular Activities…

And much, much more!

The Annual Giving Fund is integral in continuing our 70-year legacy and ensuring our continued growth. Our goal is 100% parental participation.

Thank you and we hope your kids continue to have a fun and successful school year.
