October News from the Foundation
After our October Foundation meeting several plans for the 2017-18 School Year were discussed.
Our plaques should be on display, updated with our new scholarship winners and
Hall of Fame winners.
We were pleased that 8 of our over 80 teachers and administrators were kind enough to donate from $1 to $10 out of each pay to our Foundation.
Our Executive Director and SP Grant writer Anita Ferrand recently attended the INAPEF Conference in Indianapolis and enjoyed and learned from some excellent speakers. Anita also is making plans for this year's Pacer fundraiser. The game is set for Dec. 10th on a Sunday at 5 p.m. Details will be coming to the schools in a few weeks. Anita is also working on the Monsanto Grant and a SIA Grant opportunity.
Our SP Alumni Banquet/Foundation meeting is scheduled for April 21st. We will be recognizing the classes of 78 and 93 along with the latest Alumni and Teacher/administrator Hall of Fame awards. We will also continue our Teacher Grant and Scholarship presentations as well. We are also looking into setting up an after party at the Duck if everything works out.
The board also placed $1900 into our endowment account from our working account to get it started out of the gate.
