Below are our 2020-2021 School Year fundraising goals based on school priorities for the year. Please help us reach our goals by choosing a specific fund you would like your donation to go toward or donate to the General fund. Any unused funds at the end of the year will transfer to the general fund for future priorities.
High Priorities SY2020-2021
Curriculum Support FUND (SY 2020-2021)
Our classrooms need extra tools to help teachers effectively teach the school's core curriculum. Your gift will be used to fund subscriptions and lesson books to support the curriculum.
TEACHER SUPPORT FUND (SY 2020-2021)
You can help strengthen academic programs at SLES and make seed funding available to faculty to further develop the skills needed to provide a supportive and informed classroom. Your donation will deliver funding to drive innovative teaching and support socio-emotional development in the classroom.
In this day and age, the future is in technology. Tight CPS budgets limit the access our children have to the equipment and training necessary to stay informed. Your gift will make it possible for our students and faculty to have access to the latest equipment and technology in an ever-increasing tech-focused world.
Life at SLES is not only about the academics in the classroom. Today’s students are building community by joining clubs and activities that extend beyond the school day. Your gift can help students pursue interests and projects beyond the curriculum.
SLES is a Fine Arts Magnet School, and equipment and supplies are needed to ensure the program continues to thrive. Your gift can help ensure our program is focused on the support, evolution and community awareness of the arts and arts integration.
It is important for the school to have a great relationship with the community. Your donation to this fund will support the community events the school's Family Involvement Group (FIG) organizes.
