California High School Academic Boosters
Dear Cal High Families,
The exclusive mission of California High School Academic Boosters is to raise money to enhance the learning environment at California High School. Our fundraising activities are managed entirely by Cal High Parents. Our goal is to support all students at all grade levels and at all levels of academic performance.
Your voluntary donation will support:
- Additional certified teacher positions to help expand classes with high demand and offer specialty classes that might otherwise have low enrollment.
- Teacher Grants to support special programs in a wide variety of classrooms.
- College Information Nights for all students
- Student Teams such as Mock Trial, Academic Decathlon, Model United Nations, Robotics, DECA, HOSA
- SAT & ACT Test Prep Classes offered in the Fall and Spring
- Student Academic Awards (Certificates, Letters, Pins, Graduation Cords)
- Two, $1000 Academic Scholarships to pursue higher education—NEW last year!
These programs are 80% funded by your contributions, with the remainder coming from matching gifts and other fundraising activities. The suggested donation amount for 2016-17 is $395 per child enrolled at Cal High. Any donation amount is sincerely appreciated! Your participation at any level is key to the success of these programs!
We also benefit from Employer Matching Funds Programs. Many companies will match your donation on a one for one basis. Please contact your Human Resources or Payroll Department at your company to find out. We have a dedicated Board Member to help submit matching funds requests. Please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or check the box on the donation form so we can help you with your matching funds request.
Thank you so much for supporting excellence in education at Cal High.
John Lockhart, President
