When visiting a school you will find a teacher in one of two places: their classroom or the teacher lounge. The lounge provides a respite from the hustle and bustle of the school day and a comfortable place to rest and recharge. Center School has never had a teacher lounge, and teachers have no place to unwind.
Our teachers are heroes. They need a place to hang their capes.
Over the last two years, teachers have supported our students and families in an environment that we couldn’t have imagined: a pandemic. They’ve implemented numerous protocols and guidelines into their daily routines while still providing excellent instruction to our students. We want to repay their loyalty and dedication with a “place to hang their capes”.
In order to support the construction and outfitting of a new teacher lounge, Center School will be embarking on a capital campaign. We need $60,000 to make this project happen.
We have already received two very generous donations: a keystone donation of $15,000 and a $3,000 donation. We know with your support we can raise the additional $42,000 needed.
How can you help? We have three ways that you can donate to the campaign. The choice is yours; you can choose one way, two ways, or all three.
Flat Rate Donation
We have designated levels of support that we need to meet our goal. Suggested amounts are listed below, and every dollar raised helps support our cause.
Sports Raffle Ticket Sales
You can help students sell tickets, or purchase them directly from us. The first prize is the Ultimate Sports Fan Package, with two hundred pairs of tickets to attend Philadelphia Eagles, Flyers, Sixers, Phillies, Union, and Wings home games. Tickets are available to purchase for $20 each.
Students will be participating in a walk-a-thon this spring and will be soliciting donations from family and friends for each lap they can complete. You can sponsor a student or participate in the walk-a-thon with us.
