Next School Board Meeting, Wednesday, June, 5th, 7pm
Where do we go from here?
FIRMGROUND for Kids is currently undergoing renovation. We are making strides to turn into a Foundation dedicated to supporting Roseburg schools K-12. We will need your support to achieve this undertaking.
First, we would like to know if you would like to be on our newsletter list. From here we will keep you up to date on the latest regarding what we are doing. Please email us email@example.com with NEWSLETTER in the subject line and we will get you on that list.
Second, we will be asking for and receiving monetary donations of support but only AFTER we finish up our PAC status and move to a non-profit status. If you would like to help by giving seed funds, we would be greatly appreciative. Our future plans are to create a grant system based on what the teachers, students and community thinks is important to education. We will be hosting a variety of events and fundraisers throughout the year to support the efforts and causes of developing a more well rounded and educated student.
Lastly, YOU are welcome to join in the effort of making education a better place for our youth. Your ideas, pie in the sky or not, are welcome. We can't guarantee we'll get to everything, but we like to think big. We firmly believe in order to make productive strides, you first need a clear goal in mind. Because it takes a village to raise a child, we'd also like to ask that you help us with your talents and expertise! If you are good at finding Grant opportunities or writing them, if you are good at organizing events, if you are good at communication or are one heck of a good cook, we'd like you to be part of the team. As many hands make light work, all of us have something we can bring to the table, contribute and feel good about. We will need all kinds of people to keep this moving forward.
If you were part of our Bond Levy effort we want to thank you for doing all you could do in order to try to stabilize our education system. Sadly it failed and we have a much larger hill to climb, however, we are not afraid to move forward and we hope you will continue to stay on board the effort and, perhaps, bring a friend or two as we go.
Cheers to you all and we look forward to talking to you soon.
