Annual Fund Kick-Off & Gratitude

The Annual Fund officially kicked off on Friday with an amazing pumpkin carving party! It was great seeing so many of you there, and to have our students’ creativity on full display in their inspiring array of jack-o-lanterns, whether they were scaryfunny, or most SGS-iest!

For each of the 6 weeks of the Annual Fund, we will be highlighting the values that SGS inspires in our students; beginning with APPRECIATION. Though some weeks may seem to drag on forever, these precious middle school years fly by and we could all use a reminder to appreciate every moment. So every day at SGS we encourage our students to appreciate one another; to appreciate parents, teachers, and others who help them succeed; and most importantly, to appreciate themselves, in all their unique individuality.

Along that line, we would like to give the fullest SGS APPRECIATION to our Board of Trustees for reaching 100% participation before the kick-off party! Thank you for continuing to be community leaders by example.

Starting next week, the thermometer in the window of E1 along Jackson Ave will track our progress as a whole community, so be sure to check in. The goal is to raise $120,000 by November 15th and, more importantly, to have 100% participation. We only ask that you give at a level that is meaningful to you and your family. If you have any questions about the Annual Fund, feel free to reach out to your Grade Level Champ or our Development Associate, Casey.
