Help Us Grow Expectations School!

Dear Great Expectations School Supporter,

Great Expectations School celebrated its 20th Anniversary this past year! GES has grown from 32 students to 125 in 2023, and we are bursting at the seams!

In response to our growing enrollment each year, we have put in temporary classrooms, moved walls, built small rooms for specialists, etc. But this has not been enough. It is time to create a better space for our teachers and kids!

After years of discussions and planning, our building plans have been approved and we are ready to begin construction for a permanent addition to the Great Expectations School building!

We are pleased to share that we have raised over $30,000 in pledges and individual donations from GES Board and Foundation members, parents, teachers, and community members over the past year.

Additional funds are needed to complete the project, and we have set a fall fundraising goal of $25,000.

Your contributions, whether large or small, are crucial in achieving our target. Every donation helps! Whether it's a $10 contribution or a $1,000 pledge, we urge you, your friends, and your relatives to join us in meeting our goal.

Please consider making a donation today!

With sincere gratitude,
The Great Expectations Foundation Board of Directors

Howard Hedstrom, Beth Kennedy, Bob Padzieski, Kay Costello, Katie Usem, Erica Kirsch
