Why you should become a Friend of the Foundation...
|Did you know that the Education Foundation of Santa Monica-Malibu enriches education for all our district’s students and that we rely on you to make it possible?
Every year we award almost $30,000 for Academic Enrichment Grants which directly impact students in their classrooms. One elementary school site purchased “Hands-On Science” mini-labs for their 4th and 5th grade classrooms. Another elementary classroom re-created a typical Rancho fiesta, or Fandango, featuring crafts and folklore of pre-statehood Alta California. One of our high schools used their grant to replace the weather station used as part of the year long Zuma Project, a study of the sandy beach ecosystem at Zuma Beach.
Through our Bells and Books of Knowledge initiative we have built a literacy endowment that annually awards $50,000 to our 16 school libraries. Last spring, our Tech4Success Program awarded new laptop computers to 20 first generation college-bound AVID students motivated students who might not have computers without our help. This year, “Rock the Classroom”, a program that teaches a standards-based “Literacy through Music” curriculum, will be piloted in one of our district’s elementary schools.
Through For The Arts, we have a dance program in all of our high schools. Exciting For The Arts events provide funds for our valued Dream Winds, Dream Strings and Olympic Guitar programs. For The Arts is building an endowment that will support music, visual arts, dance, and drama throughout our district, FOREVER.
The Education Foundation wants all children in our school district to have a vibrant and exciting education. We need your help! Please, become a Friend of the Foundation today and return the attached envelope with your contribution.
