Mrs .Kathleen Cornelius highlighted the importance of implimententing the use of Google
Classroom .She had the privilege of demonstrating how Google Classroom works .She
encouraged parents to get familiarized with it because we are living in the world of technology .
Ms .Michelle Marshall , the Director of Fundraising made an impactful presentation on the
importance of fundraising .When it comes to fundraising, we can all agree that it is essential
when dealing with schools,especially privately owned schools.
Obtaining money takes the fundraising Oscar. By organizing and executing successful
fundraising activities, we are able to gain the resources we need to achieve the school’s goals.
For the past term, we saw the number of activities that took place and it was somewhat
burdensome for many including myself. By doing fundraising, we can assist with supplementing
the school’s budget for things like field trips, parties/events, and facility upgrades.
One of the goals we are trying to accomplish through fundraising is the enhancement of the
school’s outlook. The tires are to be replaced and repainted, to enhance the school overall
outlook .We are in dire need for the school’s playground enhancement since playing is essential
at their developmental stages.
To assist with doing so, we have outlined three (3) important fundraising activities planned for
the month of February .
