The Verona Area School District is committed to ensuring that ALL students have equitable opportunities. This means having access to the general school education they deserve, while also being able to participate in curricular and non-curricular school activities, and even more importantly, having access to BASIC LIFE NECESSITIES! With our current COVID-19 crisis, support is needed NOW more than ever for our Wildcat Family of more than 6,000 students! For this reason, the district continues to offer its Wildcat Family Assistance Fund, and is enhancing efforts during our school closures and virtual learning unveiling, by offering this online giving option. As an example: Your simple $25 donation would cover the cost of: •approximately 25 breakfast bags of food or 15 bags of lunch that we are handing out to families during our school closures •cab fare to help transport a needed WiFi hotspot to a family who does not have internet access for our virtual learning efforts •essential personal hygiene products for a homeless family Your $50 donation could help pay for: •medications for emergency educational needs •multiple pieces of essential clothing for a homeless family Your $75 donation could help purchase: •a set of school supplies for an elementary student to utilize at home throughout our virtual learning experience during school closures •a week’s worth of essential food for a homeless family Your $100 can help purchase: •additional technology needs for the district as they unveil virtual learning For the 2020-2021 school year, money in this fund will be directed to family and student needs such as transportation, school supplies, emergency educational medications, family emergencies (house fire, flooding, death, etc.) and other school-related needs so all our students have equitable opportunities. Our goal is to raise $10,000 as we seek our community’s help in raising money for this important work. Thank you for your commitment to our students!

Your donation will make it possible for the track and field to sustain the many expenses we incur to run a very large program with high-cost equipment needs. Due to big ticket items such as pole vault pits ($18,000) and high jump pits ($10,000), and many others, the average annual expense for our team is nearly $6,000 which exceeds our budget of $450 from the athletic department. Your contribution helps our diverse group of team members have what they need for practices and host meets. Thank you!

Through Donors Choose we can receive matching donations provided for projects using a classroom kit of Versa Tiles from Hand2Mind so for every $20 donation run through them it will be $40. I am going to utilize the Versa Tiles for 4th grade to provide another option for learning stations during math to provide independent practice. The classroom kit will come with 24 for workbooks covering 6 competency areas aligned to national math standards. The tiles are self-correcting so students get immediate feedback so they are getting repeated practice that will improve skills. As I started the school year with >50% of the students in my room struggling with grade level expectations I am determined to provide the experiences they need to strengthen their grade level skills and improve future outcomes.
