HAPPENINGS & THINGS

April 26 – Fundraiser prizes distributed at school

May 1- Board Meeting 

FROM OUR PRESIDENT

At the Foundation we continue to bring the students and staff at Running Springs Academy high caliber events, resources, and programs. Fundraising allows that to happen, and we have some AWESOME things planned to help raise funds. Our 3rd Annual Thanks “Fore” Giving Golf Tournament is March 18th at Alta Vista, and our STEAM Fundraiser “Super STEAM” is kicking off in March. The STEAM Series, Teacher Grants, Steam Lab support, and more are some of the things we work hard to provide the staff and students. We can’t do any of this without volunteers and funds. We are constantly looking at new opportunities that would be fulfilling to our Running Springs community.
As far as we are concerned
“The Sky’s the Limit”.

Teacher Grants

The foundation recently awarded over $2,500 in teacher grants to Running Springs teachers. Our teacher grant program is special because it meets the targeted needs of our classrooms, giving our teachers the tools they need to enhance the student experience, helping our students to become 21st century leaders.

STEAM Series

The Winter STEAM Series was another packed event! Thank you to the volunteers who helped make this event a success. The final event for the school year will be the Spring STEAM Series on Wednesday, April 17th. Information will be sent out as it approaches. As always we’ll need lots of volunteers!

Above: First graders amazed at the “cloud in a bottle” activity at the Winter STEAM Series. Key ideas were condensation, and changes in air pressure.

Left and below: 5th and 6th graders at the DASH Robot challenge “Capture the Castle.” Key ideas were math, coding, programming, and teamwork.

We are looking for more people to join our board! Board meetings are the first Wednesday evening of each month. Board members help to carry out the mission of the foundation, plan and execute events, and uphold the integrity of the foundation.

We also have Open Executive Board Positions for the 2024-25 school year:

  • Vice President (immediate opening for 2023-24 school year)
