Dear Members of the Grosse Pointe Community:
On Monday, March 28th, the Grosse Pointe Foundation for Public Education (GPFPE) presented the Board of Education of the Grosse Pointe Public Schools with a gift of $350,000. With this presentation, the GPFPE not only met, but exceeded its goal to raise $750,000 for technology in the Grosse Pointe Public Schools. Simply put, we couldn’t have done it without you! Thanks to you, we were able to raise a total of $830,000 to be used to accelerate the district’s technology plan.
The GPFPE’s Technology Campaign was fueled by gifts from parents of current students, parents of past students, grandparents of current students, students, caring citizens, alumni, P.T.O.s, district staff members, teachers, administrators, local businesses, philanthropists, foundations, and those who do not reside in Grosse Pointe, but who care about the quality of the education we provide for our children. You gave your time to plan events, shared your many talents, and climbed mountains (both literally and figuratively), all to ensure our success. You also worked as part of parent groups, P.T.Os. and assorted other volunteer entities to fund a variety of technology projects for your schools; something that gave the GPFPE a leg up at the start of our campaign!
So, from the entire board of the GPFPE, thank you for your support. We are incredibly fortunate to be a part of community where education is valued so highly by so many. We are delighted to be able to count on you as we continue working to enhance our students’ educational experiences. After all, our success means success for our children and our community.
