 Screen Shot 2019 09 28 at 10.13.57 PMNearly five years ago, I joined a group of volunteers to help grow more resources for our local public schools. As a retired kindergarten teacher, this effort—like all my former students—is near and dear to my heart. 

I know not everyone can volunteer their time and talent to this important effort to impact our community schools, but I’m thrilled to report that financial support from friends and neighbors is indeed helping administrators, faculty and staff do even more for students. 

Most notably, more than $15,000 has been granted to teachers to turn their innovative ideas into classroom realities. So far, two rounds of the Education Foundation’s Student Opportunity Grants have been awarded for eight projects, averaging $1,200 per grant, and another grant application cycle is coming up later this fall. 

Here’s what you need to know: 

  • Every grant has directly benefited students in the district. 
  • For each grant cycle, the requests have exceeded the funding available. 


My personal goal is to help increase the funds available for Student Opportunity Grants in the 2019-20 school year. Will you help me achieve it? 

Together, I believe we can add $10,000 to the grant pool and award $25,000 this school year. I’ve made my gift and I hope you’ll join me. 

In teaching most of my 25-year career at Radio Park, I had the joy and privilege of working with our district’s youngest students and watching them grow throughout middle and high school into scholars, performers, athletes, leaders and all-around exceptional young adults.

Doing more for these deserving students will always be a priority for me. The Education Foundation offers this opportunity for me and for you. Join me in supporting our students this school year. 

Very sincerely,
