2019/2020 Annual Fund Launch
We are pleased to announce the launch of ¡experiencia MIS! the school’s 2019/2020 Annual Fund! We want to capture the essence of MIS— the ¡experiencia MIS!
What is your definition of ¡experiencia MIS! Perhaps it is the friendly, warm community of students, teachers, parents and staff. Or, the many accomplishments experienced by students when learning and communicating; or the sense of cooperation seen through middle school projects. It could be the creativity of our students in an MIS school play, making music, or creating art.
Add to that the connections students make with their peers, teachers and the natural world when skiing, ice skating or exploring our local community.
We are pretty sure that everyone experiences the magic that swirls around the school hallways that are filled with children’s laughter and energy.
Tell us about your ¡experienciaMIS!
We have placed a box labeled ¡experienciaMIS! on the front table for you to share with us and the MIS community!
While we’d like to say the fabulous ¡experiencia MIS! just happens, the fact is that it requires dedication, energy, and yes, financial resources. That’s where the Annual Fund comes in. Each year, about 10% of the school’s operating costs are covered by the Annual Fund; things like ensuring all of our students experience the great trips to Mexico, Glacier and Yellowstone, materials for special projects, tech equipment, outdoor recreation, funding for teachers professional development, and so much more.
This year, we have set a target of raising $216,000 in support of the ¡experiencia MIS! 2019/2020 Annual Fund. With everyone’s support we can achieve this ambitious goal.
Please consider making a donation today to the ¡experiencia MIS! Annual Fund.
