Parents’ Association Provides Transformational Funding
Long known for being a fundraising powerhouse in support of Ravenscroft’s mission, the Parents’ Association capped another strong year of community building and philanthropy with a gift to the school in support of faculty and staff efforts in preparing for the return to school. In addition to providing more than $75K in funding for faculty professional development and the purchase of Canvas, the PA is partnering with the school to provide lunches for faculty and staff, many of whom will supervise students during lunch.
Generous support from the Parents’ Association allowed teachers to pursue professional development to refine and expand their repertoire of best practices in the hybrid classroom.
“The PA is so proud to have the ability to support our Ravenscroft community in what is no doubt an extraordinary time in our school’s history,” 2019-20 PA Co-Presidents Nicole Carter and Georganne Santacaterina said. “With the ability to support faculty and students in the classroom and provide options for those who want to attend virtually, Ravenscroft provides a safe choice for everyone.”
In addition, the PA paid the final installment of their five-year, $600K pledge to the Embrace Possibility campaign, which raised more than $15M to bolster the school’s endowment and support financial aid, student health and wellness, and Lead From Here, our citizen leadership framework.
Canvas, Ravenscroft’s new learning management system, provides teachers, students and parents with a single intuitive and robust destination for all course-related content, whether students are learning on campus or at home.
