– Our Annual Appeal –
This campaign for the 2023-2024 school year focuses on supporting district initiatives fostering innovative thinking, growth, and success among students, including partnerships with organizations like the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, expanded STEAM programming, enriching social studies experiences, empowerment programs, and the enhancement of learning opportunities.
Thanks to your incredible support, the Fox Point-Bayside Educational Foundation achieved remarkable milestones through last year’s Trailblazing Beyond the Classroom initiative. With immersive programming from Schlitz Audubon Nature Center, adaptive physical education experiences by The Ability Center, and expanded programming across the district, we've witnessed a transformative impact on our students' learning journeys, supported by your generosity.
As we embark on this new academic year, we are excited to introduce our ambitious campaign, Full STEAM Ahead. Our goal is clear: to raise $45,000 by the end of the 2023-2024 school year to continue fostering innovative thinking, growth, and success among our students.
Your contribution will help:
- Ignite Creativity: The district is partnering with the esteemed Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and their Arts in Community Education Program (ACE), enriching our curriculum with engaging arts experiences starting in K5.
- Expand STEAM Programming: Funds will enable exciting additions such as a Bayside STEAM Club field trip to the Museum of Science & Industry in Chicago, a Writer-In-Residence Program at Stormonth, and state-of-the-art technology like robots, 3D printers, STEAM kits and more in both schools.
- Enrich Social Studies: All eighth graders will have the opportunity to embark on enriching field trips across Milwaukee and Madison, enhancing their curriculum.
- Empower Positive Choices: Your support ensures that 7th graders continue to attend empowering Youth Frontiers' programming, promoting courage among our young learners.
- Enhance Learning Opportunities: We provide support to the district in the above initiatives and beyond to enhance learning at both schools.
We are asking you, the families and residents of our generous community, to help us reach our goal of $45,000. Please help us fuel these initiatives with a tax-deductible donation of any amount.
Together, let's empower our students and provide them with the tools they need to succeed.
Thank you for being an essential part of our community and for investing in the future of our children.
