2017-2018 Fundraising Target: $100,000
The Foundation believes that the District’s elementary STEM initiative gives our students the tools they need to compete and succeed in STEM-based careers. We also recognize the importance of exposing our students to STEM at an early age. Elementary school is when these students develop the passions and interests that carry them through school and into their careers.
Because of this belief, the Foundation has set an ambitious fundraising target of $100,000 to support the District’s STEM initiative in the 2018-2019 academic year. We plan to actively raise these funds this school year, primarily through local donations.
We look forward to working with our community to achieve this goal.
