We are making some changes this year to our annual donation drive for the school. For the first time, we have set up a nonprofit fund — Friends of Golden Oak — whose sole purpose is to support improvements and programs at the school.
Your generous donation to this fund will make an impact in the classroom and throughout the school. The majority of the school’s revenue comes from state funding, but donations and contributions from parents are nearly 5% of our our budget — and enable us take improvements that would otherwise not be possible.
We are planning for some big changes and many small enhancements. Your contribution to the Friends of Golden Oak Fund will allow us to follow-through on both the big ideas and the small, but essential investments that will affect the day-to-day experience and quality of education of our students.
The kinds of the things your donation enables include:
✦Assistant teachers in every classroom!
✦Teacher professional development and retention initiatives
✦Enhancements to our classrooms
✦Enriching field trips
✦Purchasing Montessori materials for additional classrooms
✦Modernizing and improving our facility
✦Science and technology advancements
✦Support for our edible schoolyard
Your contributions will allow us to strengthen our student programs today and for generations to come. Every contribution counts!
If you attended our back to school nights you received a Direct Donation & Volunteer Form. If you did not receive one, there are more available and we have attached it to this message. Our goal is that every family will participate in this year’s drive! Please return the form to the front office.
