FOUNDATION ANNUAL FUND 2016-2017

The Foundation contributes to the school to provide the following benefits for our children:

  • 100% of the Music Program is provided by Foundation, Every Child Performs on Stage!
  • Contribute to the Computer Lab Support Personnel and additional Technology
  • Pays for the Reading Specialists to help assess all the children and assist those that need additional support
  • Pays for the Para Educators in every classroom which helps keep the Teacher-to-Student Ratio Lower!
  • Contributes to the Librarian to allow more available hours for the kids

 

We believe, and guarantee, that EVERY child will benefit from THE Foundation donations.

 

We also hope that EVERY family will donate! The suggested donation is a tax-deductible $650 per child per year ($1300 for two children).  The suggested amount is the per child amount the Foundation will give to the school this year ($350,000 in total).  However, we realize that not every family can afford this amount. We encourage every family to participate at the amount in which they feel comfortable, but if we do not hit our goal this year of raising that number benefits for your children will decrease in the future.  

Donate to the Foundation (recommendation is $650 per student)
