YOU PUT OUR “MISSION IN MOTION!”
Shaker Schools Foundation’s mission is simple and singular: To provide essential resources to enrich the educational experiences of students of the Shaker Heights City Schools.
Through the help of generous donations from individuals like you, plus gifts from corporations and grants from other foundations, SSF is able to put our Mission in Motion by providing funds for classroom resources and experiences that enrich learning for all Shaker students.
CONNECT OUR KIDS CAMPAIGN
More than ever, internet access is essential – especially for our students, who have moved to online learning. During this time of social distancing, it is important that our students stay connected to their peers and teachers. The Shaker Heights City School District continues to nurture and educate our students using Google Classroom, Gmail, and Chromebooks. However, without reliable internet access, students can’t participate in this very necessary online learning.
We ask for your support to keep Shaker families connected throughout the summer and into the next school year. Your donation to the Connect Our Kids fund will help the District deliver targeted online enrichment programs to families this summer using the LEAP program, and will support additional online instruction as needed into the next school year. Thank you for doing your part to ensure an equitable educational experience for all of our students!
