The Culver City Education Foundation (CCEF) will be at Fiesta La Ballona between 11:00 am and 5:00 pm on Saturday August 29 and Sunday August 30. Please visit us at the CCUSD booth B-07. We look forward to seeing you and sharing the latest on how CCEF works every day to support every student at every CCUSD school.
CCEF has a new web address: www.ccef4schools.org. It’s the place to go to get all of our latest news and to make fast, easy donations. It will give you a lot more information about the equipment and programs we’ve been funding, too. “In addition to giving viewers a better sense of the programs,” CCEF President Wendy Hamill explained, “the new website also provides a lot of concrete information on our funding— where it comes from, where it goes and the impact it makes at each school.” Plus we’re putting up stories and photos so you can see for yourself what the programs and equipment we’re funding are all about. So check it out now and then come back later— we’re adding to it all of the time.
What kinds of amazing opportunities and experiences will our students have in this new school year?
Professional theatre companies will do curriculum reinforcing theatre activities with every K thru 12 student. Middle and high school students will reach greater musical heights with their new band and orchestra instruments. Students at every elementary school will plant, grow and eat vegetables in their school gardens. Members of the Symphonic Jazz Orchestra will share their passion for music with our K-3 students, teaching them about rhythm, musical notation, musical instruments and great composers. Middle and high school students will find academic support through AVID and the CCHS Athletics Academic Support Program. Children in our elementary schools will gain mathematical confidence and mastery. And our students will be working with upgraded technology. Equipment that gives our students the ability to delve deeper and reach higher; programs that engage every part of their being— this broad range of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) education is just a taste of what CCEF funding is making possible in our schools.
But to continue to offer these great opportunities, CCEF needs to raise the money to fund these programs every single year. And to add additional opportunities, programs, equipment and support for our students, we need to raise even more. That’s why we need your help. Your donations fuel everything we do. Let our students know that they have your support as they move Full STEAM Ahead! by giving what you can. Send a check to: PO Box 4178, Culver City, CA 90231 or donate online at: www.ccef4schools.org.
The CCHS Athletics Academic Support Program will continue thanks to CCEF’s renewal of a grant from Global Sports Development for nearly $9,000. CCEF is very grateful to Global Sports for their commitment to both the physical and the intellectual development of our students, and for their belief in the many talents of our student athletes. globalsportsdevelopment.org/2015-spring-grant-recipients/
