Your annual tax deductible donation is vitally important to keep all the programs that are currently in place here at Short Avenue. Planet Bravo Computer Classes, Latin, Busses for Field Trips, Ballroom Dancing for the 5th grade, and a Teachers Aid are some of the things Friends of Short Avenue (FoSA) fund. Our goal is 100% participation in our Annual Giving Campaign! With a suggested amount of $500 per student, we can meet our current operating goals and dive into our wish list of things we would like to see at Short. Real grass for the yard, full time art teacher, shade canopy in the kinder and big playgrounds, new playground equipment, class size reduction teacher, and an overnight trip to Astro camp for the upper grades are just a few of those wish list items.
Please give what you can. $500 breaks down to $50 per month for 10 months. We are a 61% Title One school, so we realize that some families may not be able to donate the suggested amount. We are asking for 100% participation from ALL families and that is where every penny counts. It takes a village to make a school amazing. Most West Side Schools ask for $500 to $1200 per child, and have much bigger annual budgets. Our school is growing, which is tremendous. The word is spreading quickly what a fantastic hidden gem Short Avenue Elementary is!! Neighborhood families are realizing that choosing their neighborhood school is the right choice for them. The fact is that your children will receive an outstanding education from Short Avenue, let's ensure that their journey is as pivotal as their destination.
We can only grow with your help. So PLEASE DONATE TODAY!
