Letter: Support Rowan-Salisbury schools through Education Foundation
Often I am asked from our business community, “Tell me how we can support the Rowan-Salisbury Schools?”
Our educational foundation for RSS needs your help.
Under the leadership of Jon and Susan Steele, Rowan-Partners for Education (RPE) was re-created in 2016 with a board of directors who have a strong desire for making our schools better and more engaging for students.
One way RPE is making a difference is through establishing a “Teacher Mini Grant” program. Through an application process, these grants give teachers extra funding to enrich their learning environments by offering opportunities to students that they would not be receiving otherwise. They also provide funding support for other programs.
This year, through the generous sponsorships of Novant Health and F&M Bank, an exciting major fundraising effort was created titled, “Love Your Teacher.”
Two teachers from each of our 35 schools will be honored. They were selected through a video competition by individual students who created a 30-second video about their most inspiring teacher.
The Love Your Teacher celebration dinner promises to be an event you will remember for a long time to come. Those attending will have the opportunity to meet our teachers, enjoy a wonderful meal catered by Chef Santos, and see videos that demonstrate how our students appreciate and love their teachers. You will leave being grateful to be a part of this process.
There is still time to make your contributions and attend this fundraising event. Just contact the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce at: email@example.com or 704-633-4221.
The event is being held on May 10 at the West End Plaza from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Thank you for supporting RPE and for continuing to help us provide the extraordinary teaching and learning opportunities needed for the success of our children.
