“More than two legs are big.” — Josie, 3
Please support The Maple Street School by donating to our scholarship program, also known as our Little Friends Campaign, so that we can continue to uphold our most sacred value: Everyone gets to play at Maple Street.
This includes children, teachers, nannies, parents, families and you. When we play at Maple Street, it is grounded in joy, in being ourselves and in belonging to a preschool community that sees us, stands up for us, and loves us unconditionally. Your donation will provide financial assistance to our preschool through our scholarship fund, which provides support for 30% of Maple Street Families.
Maple Street’s vision is centered in diversity, equity integration and inclusion. This means meeting as much of the $300,000 need for financial aid as we can. Your support is essential to children and families attending Maple Street and being a part of our community who could otherwise not afford to attend.
This year, we really need you.
Maple Street is experiencing some very tough and unexpected financial times. In the last three years, we expanded, had a pipe burst, faced a devastating tragedy, and found ourselves with lower enrollment. We are working very hard, receiving expert advice, and giving all we have. But we need every family’s support to be stable and awesome and build the foundation of inclusive play that makes us who we are.
We held a children’s board meeting last week and Josie, age 3, proposed that “more than two legs were big.” This proposal passed unanimously and so we are proposing here, for our Scholarship Fund, that we get as many, many legs involved as possible. Thank you so very much for your contribution.
In Gratitude and Love,
The Maple Street School
