Build futures by rebuilding classrooms. Friends of Northwest Classen High School Foundation wants to help renovate two classrooms into state-of-the-art science laboratories so students can actually perform experiments instead of watching them on YouTube. We are participating in the ‘A Community Thrives’ grant opportunity. Part of the grant application is to raise at least $3000.00 on CrowdRise. Please read our story below and help us exceed our goal.
Friends is a charity started by a group of alumni to help support our school at a time when funding for public education continues to be slashed. We have funded hundreds of grants for the school including textbooks, instruments for the music department, and travel for sports teams to compete in tournaments.
Northwest Classen (NWC) was built in 1955 and has received several updates. However, renovating the science labs has been impossible due to budget cuts. The utility lines to the rooms have been disconnected since they are not safe for use nor compliant with current building codes.
NWC has an Academy of Health Sciences, part of the National Academy Foundation's network of specialized job training programs. The curriculum is designed to prepare students for college and their future careers. There are approximately 1200 students at NWC with 10% enrolled in the Academy program. When we can provide students with state-of-the-art science labs at NWC, all of them will have the opportunity to be future ready.
Thank you for supporting our project. We appreciate your commitment to educating our future leaders.
