Individuals, families and businesses have voiced their support for the mission of the Education Foundation in the form of generous contributions. These dollars go directly to projects that impact students in all grades, district‑wide.

In the 2018‑19 school year, the Foundation kicked off the Student Opportunities Fund, which awarded nearly $15,000 to educators across the district for innovative projects, new technology and classroom materials. These funds are designed to have a direct impact on students by inspiring teachers, staff and coaches, and bringing their worthwhile ideas to life.




And there’s more!

  • Proceeds from the Maroon & Gray Society Banquet totaling $50,000 launched the Mental Health Matters Fund to support programs for student mental health and well-being.
  • EITC contributions continued to advance K-5 STEM and high school’s Oracle Academy.
  • A generous donor pledged $500,000 to Memorial Field renovations.
  • The Bill Cahir Memorial Scholarship helped to offset fees for a student journalist to attend a major national conference.


Thank you to all who have helped to create this incredible positive momentum. Please keep it going by joining us again in 2019-20! If you’re new to learning about the Education Foundation, we’re excited to welcome you! When you support students, the impact of your gift truly lasts a lifetime.
