Like most independent schools, All Saints’ depends on the generosity of current families, grandparents, board of directors, alumni, faculty, and friends to carry out the mission of the school. We value your gift of time, talent and resources as tuition alone does not cover the full cost of an All Saints’ education. When you make a contribution of any size, you are joining a community of family and friends who help ensure that we can provide each child with an extraordinary educational experience and maintain the long-term financial health of the school.
The Annual Fund is one of our most important sources of revenue. Tuition covers only 75% of the total cost of a student’s education. Gifts to the Annual Fund bridge the gap between tuition income and the full cost of an All Saints’ education. Unlike tuition, Annual Fund donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.
Every year, Annual Fund gifts help the school invest in our incredible faculty, maintain a low student-teacher ratio even with overall enrollment growth, enhance our classroom resources, create new programs and professional development opportunities, and continue All Saints’ commitment to providing a high quality, student-centered education to all families.
This year, Annual Fund gifts will also fund three specific projects including technology upgrades and interactive board replacements, upgrades to the library and STEM lab spaces, and a redesign of the teaching and learning garden.
You can make your tax-deductible gift by check, credit card, stock or securities.
This year, 19 Promethean Boards need replacement throughout our campus including in classrooms and specials classrooms. We are replacing these boards with interactive View Sonic boards that are recommended for educational use.
Our teachers and students use interactive boards every day in the following ways:
As our library transforms into an innovative 21st century learning space, we have designed an upgrade with an adaptable layout, flexible seating, areas suited to specific tasks, a work area, and available technology.
Our Parent Guild has generously purchased the campfire seating. The 6th grade class last year gifted us 4 stools for collaborative seating.
The remaining items are the independent reading areas and the instructional area.
Our current STEM lab is designed as a traditional, single-function classroom for lecture and experiment. Classroom environment is a big factor that affects the learning process. This redesign will allow for project-based and collaborative learning and the availability to reconfigure throughout the day based on each specific project.
The teaching garden is being redesigned to include a tricycle/balance bike track, raised beds for planting fruits, vegetables, and flowers, an amphitheater for all grades to conduct puppet shows, readers theaters, and even concerts, an engineering station with outdoor blocks for building and problem solving, and more.
Thank you to all sponsors and contributors to the 2021 BBQ fundraiser last year! We raised $28,000 to begin the redesign of the Teaching and Learning Garden.
Granger Landscaping Company will begin work this week on this project. We are raising additional monies to fund other features of the garden including: the amphitheater, mud kitchen, balance beam, water center, project area, and engineering station.
There are several specific naming opportunities available including: View Sonic Boards, areas in the library and STEM lab, and areas in the Teaching and Learning Garden. Please contact Ashley Stokes for more information.
23% of All Saints’ families have participated in giving to the Annual Fund as of 10/21/21.
