Melrose 2017-2018 Annual Giving
The Annual Giving Campaign has started.
IT is UP TO US to Level up & UNLOCK the celebrations!
We all know that Melrose Elementary delivers a powerful STEAM education. What is less well known is that LAUSD pays only for the school facilities, teachers, and administration. LAUSD does NOT pay for our arts classes, school library, iPads and laptops, math textbooks, and so much more.
Big Picture: We as a school must raise $250,000 a year from a variety of funding sources to keep the STEAM train rolling. That presently works out to about $717 invested in each student to provide:
1:1 iPads/Laptops * School Library * Music * Math Coach * Garden Ranger
Dance * PE * Visual Arts * Field Trips * TAs * Math Textbooks
Student Software * Inner City Arts AND MUCH MORE!
First Step: This Giving Campaign is our FIRST AND LARGEST STEP TOWARDS that big-picture goal. This year we are striving to raise $75,000 via Giving. Every single dollar helps. When every family at Melrose gives at ANY level, it helps our grant applications – another way to achieve the big picture.
