On April 27th, the SLPS Foundation community had the opportunity to come together to celebrate progress, partnerships and possibility. Susan Schlichter, an SLPS Foundation Board Member, and her husband Jerry Schlichter graciously opened their home for the gathering. The evening included a celebration of the reaccreditation of the District which was announced in January 2017. Remarks were also shared from both SLPS and SLPS Foundation leadership. They provided an opportunity to build on the momentum with significant academic gains made by SLPS students over the past several years, and the incredible investments that Foundation donors have made since 2015: $12 million has been raised to support the work of the SLPS Transformation Plan. Thank you SLPS Foundation investors, supporters, advocates and champions.
The celebration of generosity continued and was quickly followed by love and support of the SLPS Foundation and SLPS students in action: GIVE STL Day took place two weeks later on May 11th, and the SLPS Foundation successfully raised more than $19,000. Thank you to all!
