2019/2020 PARENT APPEAL
Thank you for being a part of our ULS family! Rest assured that your child’s learning continues to be supported by a community of innovative educators, supportive administrators, dedicated parents, and motivated peers who are working together to ensure positive outcomes for all students.
The University Laboratory School Foundation was formed in 2013 to support the charter school’s dual missions – to deliver the best possible education to its students and to serve the educational research and development community. Financial support from the foundation enables the school to improve its facilities, support its teachers, and allow for enhanced learning opportunities outside the normal scope of its operating budget. Our all-volunteer board of directors is comprised of proud ULS graduates and supporters who want to ensure the next generation of students receive more support than they did.
In order to continue our upward trajectory, the foundation’s goal is to increase our support of the school and its current students by working with current parents, alumni, businesses and foundations to build a community of givers. In past years, donations have made a clear impact on the success of our students by updating key facilities, while funding projects to improve their learning experience. Here are some of the things the foundation has supported last year:
Installation of seven (7) Air conditioning units for four (4) classrooms, teacher
workroom, and school office
Low Speed high velocity ceiling fans for 3 classrooms
Installation of 150 new student lockers
New Performing Arts and Band Room chairs
Grades 9-11 Math curriculum materials
New band instrument – Bassoon
Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Physician Education, Elementary Supplies
Social Studies- CRDG China/Ethics Curriculum Textbooks
Your kokua and financial support is needed to continue to upgrade our facilities and improve the technology, security, and comfort of our campus. While the school always possesses the need for educational supplies, one major request and goal hoping to be fulfilled is to purchase a new school bus needed to transport students on field trips, off-campus assemblies, athletic events, and many other off-campus activities and events.
Your financial support of $1,500 for the year (or any level of support you can provide) will help ULS to make these improvements for our students and teachers. Would you please consider making a one-time or monthly donation to this important annual initiative?
Each year, your contributions, big or small are invested right back into the school to benefit the students. Your support and partnership is greatly appreciated. Mahalo nui loa!
