Dear Neighborhood School Families, Friends, Teachers, Alumni and Community,
We value the progressive education that the Neighborhood School provides our children: a curriculum that takes the lead from their curiosity, freedom to explore, and a culture where everyone is welcome. Unfortunately, public school funding only gets us part of the way there.
Our school needs your support in continuing to provide a progressive public school education to our elementary school students.
Please support our Kinship Campaign by donating abundantly, generously and according to your ability. Ask your friends and family to do the same. Our goal is to raise $25,000 by the end of 2019! It is an ambitious goal, but it is crucial to the school maintaining its current educational program and to counter the under-funding we face.
The Neighborhood School helps strengthen the bond within the local community and broadens the sense of family felt by all those that come into contact with the school. This strength of community calls forward the idea of kinship and the name of our campaign.
Every dollar you donate is spent directly on filling needs such as; extra teaching assistants for kindergarten/1st grade classes, the school library, field trips, art classes, the school garden, and more. We know that many families want to give, but simply cannot afford to give so much. We value whatever contribution you make, no matter the size or kind. Whether you are contributing money, time, or energy to rally others to join the cause, it is your participation in the community life of our school that counts.
With love and thanks,
The Parent Teacher Association of the Neighborhood School.
