Giving campaign for schools underway

Sisters has a reputation for innovative education programs that enrich students’ school experience. It also has a reputation for exceptional community involvement in the life of the schools.

Those elements come together in the annual giving campaign of the Sisters Schools Foundation (SSF), which is now underway. Local folks can support vital programs through donations made at http://ssd6.org.

Donations go toward materials and equipment for programs — not for salaries.

Current Foundation President Angela Buller noted that SSF distributed over $30,000 in its last fall season distribution. Distribution is done primarily in the fall so that funds can be accessed during the current school year.

Funds provided a new keyboard for Sisters Elementary School and supported the traditional fourth-grade field trip. Greenhouse enhancement and materials for science experiments supported the school’s STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) instruction.

The Foundation supported Sisters Middle School’s programs promoting belonging and inclusivity, including the Outlaw Store and “Everyone Belongs” clubs.

Sisters High School received funding for the audio-visual program to upgrade equipment, mannequins for CPR instruction, and materials and technology to enhance digital arts programs.

The Roundhouse Foundation in Sisters has contributed to arts funding through the Foundation.

“We really appreciate their support,” Buller said.

Buller noted that community support is vital in supporting teachers who are going above and beyond the norm to provide excellence in education to Sisters students.

“These teachers who are being creative and think outside the box get funding for their programs so the kids get a really well-rounded education,” she said.

If you prefer to donate by mail, make your check payable to the Sisters Schools Foundation, and send it to: Sisters Schools Foundation P.O. Box 2155, Sisters, OR 97759.
