2018/2019 PARENT APPEAL
Aloha and welcome to the 2018-2019 school year from the University Laboratory School Foundation. We are looking forward to partnering the many alumni and supporters of ULS with your family to help provide the resources for the good and successful work of the students of this unique charter school. If this year is anything like the last, we will again see our children achieve great outcomes and represent the University Lab School well in our community, state and nation!
The University Laboratory School (ULS) is a unique and special organization. Our charter school serves two interlocking missions: to design and deliver the best possible education to our own students, and to be a leader in educational research and development. Our vision is that all students will graduate ready for college, work, and responsible citizenship.
As you may be aware, the per pupil funding received from the Hawaii State Charter School Commission falls short of our student needs and we need to find other ways to supplement our operational costs. The financial support we receive from our families, alumni, and the community allow ULS to fulfill our mission and vision. This Annual Appeal to our families goes a long way in helping us meet that shortfall in funding each year.
In the past these funds have been used to support facility maintenance and improvements, additional needed supplies in our performing arts and science departments, travel and other costs for our teams who represent ULS at State and National competitions, and other needs of the school. This year our school will be facing several one-time costs for our athletic programs, updated math curriculum, and facility upgrades.
We ask that you please consider a $1,500 donation (or any level of support you can provide) to support the school this year. There are several ways to donate either one time or monthly:
Check or Cash donations: Please print the PARENT APPEAL DONATION FORM and submit the form and cash or check donations to the school office.
Credit Card: Please go to the University Laboratory School Foundation online donation page at http://weblink.donorperfect.com/parentappeal. Or you may print the PARENT APPEAL DONATION FORM and submit the form including credit card information to the school office.
Mahalo in advance for your generous support of the University Laboratory School. We look forward to partnering with you to continue to provide excellence for our students!
