Of the many things we've had to learn this year - testing the limits of our resiliency, our adaptability, and our Zoom skills, we have learned what we can live without - handshakes, ball games, and crowded restaurants. More importantly, we have learned what we absolutely cannot go without - our teachers, safe classrooms, and our outdoor play spaces. And we have been so fortunate to only have missed two school days due to Covid.
As this school year draws to a close, please become a member of The Gratitude Project with a donation today and help us reach our goal of $50,000 by July 15. Your gift will go to the The Gratitude Project Classroom Fund or Playground Improvement Fund. With a generous $10,000 match from a member of our community, your gift will be worth twice as much.
THE GRATITUDE PROJECT - CLASSROOM FUND
To provide a stipend to Old Mission Peninsula School teachers to use throughout the 2021-22 year. On average, our generous teachers spend $500 of their own money each year to enrich their classrooms with special supplies and enrichments. The Classroom Fund will ensure that our brave, committed, and thoughtful teachers have the resources to make their classrooms exceptional environments for kids to learn and thrive next year.
THE GRATITUDE PROJECT - PLAYGROUND IMPROVEMENT FUND
To support the 2021 Summer project to repair, enhance and expand Old Mission Peninsula School playspaces which benefit not only OMPS students, but our whole community who have safely stayed fit - mentally and physically - on the sledding hill, play structures, and expansive grounds not only throughout this pandemic but for generations before and into the future.
