$100,000 Opportunity Challenge
Thank you to The Peter Jay Sharp Foundation for their generous contribution and match of $50,000!
We met this challenge with the support of the Clark Mills, ELC, Lafayette Mills, Milford Brook, Pine Brook, Taylor Mills & Wemrock Brook PTA's, MEMS Booster Organization, MERS staff, friends, members of our community, district families, local businesses and corporate sponsors.
A very special thank you to Star and Barry Tobias for bringing this opportunity to the children in our district!
The Foundation for MERS along with The Peter Jay Sharp Foundation and the MERS District administrators have identified four areas of focus for these funds:
Digital Conversion Initiative – Bringing 21st century technology to our students.
Music is Instrumental – Ensuring that all students have instruments available for instruction.
Piano Lab Project – Providing elementary schools with state of the art digital piano labs.
Summer Program – Scholarship program for students to improve math and language arts skills.
The Foundation for MERS is grateful for the support
of our community in reaching this goal!
This challenge will benefit all our students.
