The annual mailing goes out in October to parents, family members, business leaders and vendors who work with the school, along with other targeted mailing lists. The appeal is typically allocated for a particular project
The Annual Appeal for 2016-2017 will go to pay for an emergency repair to the school's fire alarm system, which had a catastrophic failure in the Fall. We also aim to purchase more ChromeBooks for our classrooms.
For the 2015-2016 year, the Annual Appeal was dedicated to an upgrade of the building's computer servers, making Internet access quicker and more reliable. We also installed an improved sound system in the auditorium, and we refurbished all exterior doors for safety and security. Additionally we had to pay expenses to for a mandatory refinance on our mortgage.
For the 2014-2015 year, the Annual Appeal was targeted to a lighting upgrade in the auditorium and Phase 1 of a window replacement project.
