Thank you for taking a look at my Dominican Academy Fundraising page!
It is important that I raise this money for my school so that all of us girls can remain on "partial scholarship." Because my school doesnt want to charge an extraordinary amount of money in tuition we are still left with a financial gap.
I feel that this school has taught me a lot about faith,love, and service to others. Each year we volunteer our time to communities in need such as food pantries, physically disbaled or emotionally vulnerable children in pre-schools, and cerebral palsy center among many others.
The teachers here really make an effort to make you understand their subject. They show that they care about their students understanding the topic and sacrifice their free time to help us. I have learned so much here at Dominican Academy, especially this year in my ethics course. It's taught me a lot about what believing in something greater than ourselves means in our lives, how to stand up for something you believe is just without resorting to violence, why it's important to take care of our environment, and how to interpret religious truth maybe not as scientific truth but one that is spiritually or ethically true.
The least I can do is give back to a school that strives to teach us these important lessons. You can give as little or as much as you would like.
