Encouraging Inclusive Programming
The 2-year campaign to build new playgrounds at Stormonth and Bayside exceeded all expectations by raising $210,000, which surpassed fundraising goals by nearly 100% and funded more than half the cost of both ADA-accessible playgrounds. But the real success of the campaign was felt at the September 2021 ribbon cuttings where children of all abilities played together like never before in our community.
The district and our board of parent volunteers was inspired by our playground project to work toward providing a more inclusive and equitable community.
Expanding on those ideals, we are focusing on encouraging interesting, innovative and inclusive programming. We believe supporting programming is always a rewarding effort to mobilize significant change among our student body, future leaders and community. But, we need your help to make this happen.
While we haven't finalized which projects will help achieve those ideals, we believe seed money is critical to breathe life into ambitious new programs that the administration and, especially, teachers are eager to introduce.
These funds will support programs and strategies to usher in a learning process that encourages new ways of thinking, growing and thriving at both the elementary and middle school levels such as:
- Motor labs for early education
- STEAM clubs aimed at inspiring our students
- Advancing the maker spaces at both schools with high tech equipment
- And more
The ideas we’ve heard, while still in their infancy, focus on programs and strategies to usher in a more egalitarian learning process that encourages new ways of thinking, growing and thriving at both the elementary and middle school levels.
We are asking our community to join us in supporting this initiative.
