The Annual Fund Campaign supports instructional enhancements to the classroom, such as the purchase of a set of iPod Touch devices so that the American Sign Language students can easily make and share videos in class.

So far this year, the Annual Fund Campaign has raised $130,156 for the school, which is 48% of our $270,000 goal. Overall current parent participation is 33%, and here is the parent participation by class:

·      Senior parents: 39%
·      Junior parents: 41%
·      Sophomore parents: 36%
·      Freshmen parents: 13%

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. If you have not yet donated, you may do so online at http://www.GovernorsSchoolFoundation.org/makeadonation.html.
