To the editor:
As president of the Perry Township Education Foundation, I want to thank everyone who has supported our organization. Providing your time, talent and treasures in various capacities has made the foundation stronger and more effective, and we deeply appreciate that.
Since 1994 the foundation has supported Perry Township Schools through the solicitation of donations. That support includes providing more than $1.2 million in teacher grants to fund innovative and creative educational ideas in the classroom.
As with any agency, there have been peaks and valleys in our ongoing success. However, over the past two years the foundation has made major strides in setting the stage for expanding future successes that will benefit our students.
We feel positive about what we can accomplish in 2017 for the benefit our students.
As you finalize your financial plans for 2016, we hope that you keep the foundation in mind. We provide a wonderful way of impacting the education of our students, and as you know, there is no better investment we can make than supporting the development of our country’s future leaders.
We thank you for all you have done for the foundation in the past, and we hope we can work together in the future to make Perry Township education the best that it can be.
