EVENT DATE: Jun 16, 2012
WE WON THE LOTTERY WHEN OUR KIDS GOT INTO SOCES! Our school is one of the top public schools in the nation. Our API score is 882, one of the highest in all of LA. 99% of our students graduate and 98% attend colleges such as Berkley, Harvard, Yale, NYU, UCLA, USC, and MIT. Many have received partial and even full scholarships. Now more than ever our students and teachers need our financial support to provide them with the opportunities they deserve. The reality is that education is at a crossroads.
LAUSD MAY NO LONGER BE PAYING FOR:
One Class Size Reduction Teacher , Teaching Assistants, Instructional Aides, and Additional Teaching Hours to Reduce Class Size and Increase Class Offerings
G.A.T.E. (Gifted) Program, and Gifted Teacher Training
Intervention Programs (reading, after-school tutoring)
Credentialed 4th and 5th Grade PE Coach, Curriculum and Equipment
Electives Such as Art, Science, Robotics, Tech Visual Arts, Garden and Communication Programs
A Full-Time School Nurse (only 1.5 days are fully funded)
Curriculum Enrichment (field trips, on campus presentations, supplemental instructional materials)
Copy Machines and Maintenance
SOCES is an exceptional school and community. If we all help, we can we sustain 30 years of continued excellence.
PLEASE HELP OUR SOCES FAMILY REACH OUR GOAL OF 100% PARENT DONATION PARTICIPATION! The suggested donation to benefit the most students would be $500 per child, but no donation is too small or too large - $5, $50, $500, $5,000. Every single dollar will help your child and every other student at SOCES! There are 2100 students at SOCES. If every family gives at least $100 we will have $210,000 and be on our way to covering our losses AND enhancing our current programs.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT... PLEASE CHECK ALL THAT APPLY TO YOU:
I would rather spend $500 on a year of excellent education at SOCES than $27,500 for private school.
I would rather pay $1.69 a day (2.5 Starbuck’s coffees a week) and have smaller class sizes, field trips and a full time nurse.
I would rather donate what I can, $5.00 - $10.00 a week, than go back to my neighborhood school.
DO IT TODAY! Give to the GiFT fund! $500 per student is the suggested donation, but any amount is greatly appreciated. No donation is too small or too big!
