Good News from the Development Office

We exceeded our 2017-18 Mother Oak Annual Fund goal of $100,000. Once all pledges are fulfilled the total will be $108,665 from 43% of our parents. This fund supplements the schools general operating budget. As a result, every student and faculty member benefits from the success of this campaign. 

The Game Changer Campaign continues and to date has raised $281,621 in gifts and pledges. That has provided the funds for updating the Japonica Gym. The roof, interior and exterior walls are complete and as soon as school is out, we will begin work on the floor. On the University Campus, field lights were purchased and installed which allowed soccer to be played at night this past season. 

We are more than halfway to the goal of $515,000 which will complete both campus projects. We still need goals, fencing, bleachers and a pressbox to play football at home. And new bleachers are needed for the Japonica gymnasium.  We will launch another appeal for the next phase of the project very soon. In the meantime, we are trying to secure committments for matching funds. If you are interested in doubling the impact of your gift, no matter what size, please contact the Diane in the Development Office for details.
