Their fundraising goals for this year’s Gala are as ambitious as their programatic goals for the 2017-18 school year.
- Outdoor Science Camperships for 455 of our most disadvantaged fifth graders.
- Summer School Student Math Coaches for over 500 middle school students looking to get a jump on math.
- Teacher mini-grants for Project Based Learning.
- Season of Service, Period of Peace serving 4,500 middle and high school students.
- Moving the math achievement needle with a pilot Elementary STEAM Support program.
We hope you can join them at this year’s Gala and/or purchase some raffle tickets to help make sure they are able to deliver these important programs to our San Leandro students.
