Each year the PTO Development Committee organizes the Annual Appeal which raises funds for enrichment and financial aid at the Campus School. The funds raised through the Annual Appeal are often what allow us to go beyond the basics and provide materials and experiences that further enrich and extend the students' education and make a wider range of professional development available to teachers. Funds raised through the Annual Appeal continue to be important to our efforts to make the Campus School available to a broader range of families. While the PTO supports the School in numerous ways, the Annual Appeal is the only PTO fund raising effort that directly supports enrichment and financial aid.

2016-17 Annual Appeal

June 2017

Dear Friends,
As the countdown to summer vacation begins, we are reminded of how much our children have grown since they entered their classrooms in September. Their bodies are taller and stronger, of course, but it is also their knowledge and inquisitive nature that have been fostered over the past nine months by the dedicated faculty, staff, students, and parents at the Smith College Campus School. This is also the time of year when we remind parents and the broader community about the SCCS 2016-2017 Annual Appeal, and ask for your continued support in reaching our $15,000. goal.

Your contribution, no matter the size, makes a significant and immediate impact on our children’s education, including:

  • supporting activities that go beyond the school’s operating budget, including classroom enrichment, professional development, and financial aid
  • ensuring that teachers have resources to undertake innovative new projects in the classroom such as robotics and designing and building cold-storage frames for our garden.
  • giving our teachers the opportunity to attend professional development workshops in specialized areas like mathematical discourse and seminars on expanding our social justice curriculum.
  • bringing notable and nationally-recognized guest speakers like Dr. Peg Dawson, Dr. Carol Dweck and Dr. Catherine Steiner-Adair to our school.

We know that so many you already give ample time and energy to our school community through volunteering in our classrooms, on fields trips and at PTO events, and we want to extend a heartfelt “thank you.” This year we ask that you also support the Campus School by making a gift to the Annual Appeal that is meaningful and manageable for your family. Please take a moment now to donate (see directions below).

Your contribution sends an important message within our community, and ensures the long-term growth and health of our school.

With gratitude for your support,

Karen McAmis
PTO Chair
On behalf of the Development Team
