As you know, we are currently engaged in a focused effort to create a hands-on science program. This week, our teachers began discussing national standards and reflecting on our current program. Our plan over the next year is to develop our program so that our students truly experience the excitement of science.
This project is three-fold:
This is a costly and time consuming process. It is for this reason that we are reaching out to the SJS community, local partners and philanthropists who recognize the need for every child to both learn and experience science.
I know that we have lofty fundraising goals and many of you have been so generous. It is for this reason that we ask that you consider sharing this information with your personal friends and networks. You never know, one of your friends, or possibly their employers may be looking for a charity for their company to adopt.
We are fortunate and thankful for Mr. Roger Bertrand, a local business owner and generous philanthropist, and supporter of Catholic Education who has agreed to match the funds we raise for this project. The outline of his fundraising challenge is as follows:
10 $1,000 gifts = $10,000
50 $500 gifts = $25,000
100 $100 gifts = $10,000
Unlimited amount of $50 gifts
