Thank you for stepping up to support our wonderful teachers and students during GIVING TUESDAY and throughout the year!
Help us reach our 2017 goal of $7,000 in donations! Give on November 28th and then help us to spread the word!
Your GIVING TUESDAY gift will help us make enriching and inspiring programs and projects possible in our schools. Our 2016-17 grants made possible with donations from hundreds of people like you, include:
** Fractions Facilitation Course for Elementary Math Teachers: Intervention courses for teachers that continue the data-driven training they received last year through a grant from AEF to meet the needs of underperforming elementary students;
** Picture My Immigration Story: All ARMS students will research and tell their family immigration story through pictures, stories, and song, ultimately producing a year-end community event;
** ARHS Wellness Improvement Grant: Revising the high school Physical Education curriculum and upgrading equipment to create a culture of health for all students, with a focus on those who are not participating in team sports;
· Undoing Racism: 20 teachers will be trained to facilitate conversation and dialogue across the district using the highly regarded Undoing Racism© curriculum.
and much more!
