Here is a look at the programs the Annual Giving Campaign will fund this year:
CLASSROOM MINI-GRANTS **NEW**
Brand new this year, 10% of the Annual Giving Campaign funds raised will be directed towards classroom minigrants: a pool of funds that teachers can apply to in order to purchase special materials for their classrooms.
Our Music Specialist provides a creative approach to music helping students build performance skills and self-esteem. In music classes, all students are exposed to a variety of musical principles. Students’ growing musical skills are enjoyed by our community at our all-school winter and spring concerts. Our 4th and 5th graders are provided musical instruction on select instruments.
In addition to funding an Artist in Residence, the Annual Giving Campaign funds additional art supplies and materials to further enhance our children's activities. All North Beach students participate in the art program throughout the year.
Tutoring funds support three onsite tutors and a Tutor Coordinator, who coordinates students from SPU to come volunteer in our classrooms. Our tutoring program provides one-on-one academic coaching and small group curriculum support. All students benefit from the reduced class sizes during mentoring and coaching sessions. Teachers surveyed called the program “highly effective” and appreciate the benefits it provides to their classes.
Our tech funds have provided funding each year for Type to Learn and database subscriptions:
