Supporting Flory

Supporting Flory

 

There are numerous opportunities for parents, staff, and community members to support Flory programs through individual events and ongoing opportunities both on and off campus.  With a wide range of choices, everyone can help support Flory at the level with which they feel most comfortable.  Not everyone can always give money, your time volunteering on-campus or at an event is equally as valuable.  This page provides more information on our FAST Booster Club (FAST), as well as our fundraising programs.

 

FAST Boosters

 

FAST's  mission is to raise much needed funds to equip our students with a strong foundation in STEM concepts through staff development, programs, materials, field trips, specialists and equipment. Our goal each year is to raise $90,000 to continue to support the outstanding STEM focused education our students receive.  FAST is a registered non-profit 501(c)(3) so every penny of the funds we raise goes directly back to our campus and our students.

 

Our vision is to educate every student with the knowledge, skills, and principles to succeed and contribute in a competitive and technologically advancing world by providing engaging STEM learning opportunities. Our emphasis on integrating the principles of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Into standard curriculum evolves from the realization that these areas represent career fields that will be most in demand once our current students graduate. The funding FAST provides to our students allows them to explore technology and engineering solutions, apply concepts of mathematics in order to figure out real life issues, solve problems or challenges, and investigate the natural world. Exposing our students to different and unique STEM learning approaches will allow them to become technologically, scientifically and mathematically proficient at an early age.

Field Day

 

An annual event that combines a jog-a-thon type event with other field day activities.  Students seek pledges or sponsorships and have the opportunity to earn individual and class based prizes as we try to reach class and school goals.  On the day of the BIG event, everyone participates and we need lots of parents to volunteer.  This year, 10% of all monies raised will go to emergency relief efforts.  We are hoping to raise $20,000 in order to fund a variety of programs, as well as upgrade our sound system in the MPR.  If each student was able to raise $45 through this event, we would easily hit our target.  Click here to go directly to the donation page.
