Community support for New Roots Charter School over the years has provided fertile ground for our young people to reach their full potential.
Now in our eleventh year, we are fully realizing the vision expressed in our charter, which was recognized nationally in 2019 with a Best of Green Schools 2019 Transformation Award from the Green Schools National Network. As we see the rise of a global youth movement in response to climate change, we know that this good work is more important than ever.
In round numbers, New Roots spends half the money per pupil to educate a student population with twice the rates of financial and academic need as the district that we’re located in. That’s twice the need -- and half the funding.
So it’s friends like you, willing to lend a hand, that make the very best things happen for our students. You put the icing on the cake, and the wind under the wings of the hard-working educators that seek to help their students soar! Coming off the heels of a successful Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser where we raised over $963.02, we created a fund that teachers can request money for classroom supplies, classroom activities, and field trips. Would you be willing to donate to this fund to help Empower New Roots Teachers?
