What Parents and Teachers are Saying
“My children love their school. Unfortunately, the school’s budget is not enough to employ the staff required. The classroom sizes are 40 students to 1 teacher. I have faith that Moving Schools Forward will help solve this issue by bringing in extra funds to their school.”
“I am an English teacher with 15 years of experience. As the years further on my students fall further and further below the average reading level. Our school is in need of a better tutoring program that offers better equipment and more interactive activities to engage the students and keep them interested in learning. I will happily participate in Moving Schools Forward to make this a reality for our students.”
“My nephews constantly have school fundraisers that I am unable to participate in. I live in a different state and never have any money during the campaign dates of the fundraisers. Now, I can shop online at any time for anything I want and need to help raise money for their school. I excited to be able to contribute to funding their school.”
