The Annual Fund Campaign funds student trips, like this month’s Freshman Government Field Trip.
Students met Governor Bob McDonnell on the steps of the Virginia State Capitol; heard about Virginia’s judicial system from Justice Cleo Powell, the first African-American woman to serve on Virginia's Supreme Court; and toured the General Assembly and House Chamber.
So far this year, the Annual Fund Campaign has raised $209,402 for the school, which is 93% of our $225,000 goal. Overall current parent participation is 63%, with parent participation by class listed below:
· Senior parents: 73%
· Junior parents: 65%
· Sophomore parents: 65%
· Freshmen parents: 53%
The Governor’s School Foundation’s Annual Fund Campaign supports programs for students, grants for teacher continuing education, and special projects for facilities and equipment.
