BENEFITING: Nashville Classical Charter School
EVENT DATE: Jul 31, 2013
Incorporated in 2011 as Athens of the South, Nashville Classical Charter School will open on July 31st, 2013. Our first class - 100 kindergartners - will achieve academic success and personal excellence as they receive an education that prepares them for high school, college and life.
Our school was the only charter school unanimously approved in Spring 2012 and was the result of a full year of research and design. Now, one year later, we are preparing to open. But we need your help.
Nashville Classical operates on public dollars without additional or sufficient funding for transportation, facilities, or long-term growth. As our first day with scholars approaches, we have set the ambitious goal of securing one donation per day. Your support directly helps our scholars make history. For example:
$15 covers the cost of one uniform shirt.
$50 provides a child with a yearly uniform scholarship
$100 provides a child with library books for the year
$500 provides a classroom desktop computer for blended learning
$1,000 provides the yearly professional development of a teacher
$4,000 provides a classroom library
All donors will receive free admission to Storytelling For Scholars on June 25th. Storytelling For Scholars is a collaboration with East Side Story Bookstore and will feature performances by local musicians, readings by local authors, and complimentary drinks and appetizers.
