Last year, we raised $260,000 - over $100,000 more than we raised the year before, and that money is now funding….
a new district-wide technology program which includes two tech-nology teachers.
4 hours of instructional aide time per day at our elementary schools.
a district-wide communication system.
Community support and generous donations have made this possible!
From 2010-2011, the MEF funded the music program and instructional aides, and during 2011-2012, the MEF funded the counselor at Taylor and instructional aides. The great news is that the district is now funding the music program, and a grant from the Peninsula Health Care District will continue to fund the counselor, as well as provide Physical Education and other important health programs for district schools. The MEF is thrilled to be funding two technology teachers, instructional aides and a communication system this year.
We are encouraged by the progress we are making as a district, and, as always, grateful to all who have donated, and supported our efforts. This year we intend to raise even more so we can bring back enrichment programs--like reading, math, science, technology, and the arts--no longer funded by the state.
If we raise $260,000, we can maintain the district-wide technology program we’re implementing this year, which includes two technology teachers.
If we raise $320,000, we can fund four teachers.
AND if we raise $400,000, we can fund five teachers.
We know we can raise $400,000 and fund five teachers, but we need your donations to do it. In order to hire more teachers, and provide the programs our kids need to thrive in the 21st century classroom, we need to raise $450 per child. All donations of any amount are important, and 100% participation is critical.
Donate, volunteer, and know that whatever you can do, whether a little or a lot, is the right choice!
Our Kids. Our Future. Our Choice.
