Do you have questions about the Foundation? To effectively answer questions, we will be hosting an informal morning coffee with Jackie Jordan and Steve Mangano (Board President) on Friday, May 16th at 8:45 AM in the media center. There will be a short discussion and then a Q&A. Jackie, Steve and other board members will be there until 9:30 so if you are running late, just drop by anytime during that period. Starbucks coffee and donuts will be served, so you can get your fix and get your questions answered!
Please read this wonderful blog post from Principal Jordan on “Why a Foundation Matters” at Underwood Elementary. Love the sharing of personal experiences in her writing, and the metaphor explains it perfectly.
We need you to meet our immediate goal of $60k ($100k stretch) by July 1st, 2014 to offset budget cuts for the upcoming 2014-2015 school year. Click ‘donate and/or buy tickets’ button to make a donation and purchase tickets to attend our debut benefit for the Foundation “Underwood Under the Stars” on May 31st Formal invitations for the event will arrive to you this week too, but no need to wait to purchase tickets — space is limited.
Be on the lookout for Invitations to the Underwood Foundation kick-off event! They will be mailed to your home. The event will truly be a night to remember.
Some of you may have seen the WRAL coverage of the press event at Underwood yesterday. Our own Jackie Jordan is highlighted. The video highlights the immediate need for the Foundation to ensure Underwood maintains its outstanding education curriculum and teachers!
