What is Families For Stevenson?  

 

 

We are a non-profit, parent-run (that means you), volunteer Booster Association. 

Our mission is to enhance our children’s education by funding art education and technology programs that cultivate creative thinking and development.

 

Through the generous donations, fundraising efforts and volunteer time of our amazing parents and community we raised $88,000 last year! 

 

This year let’s strive to do even better.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Art Programs

 

Research has consistently shown that students who have access to a quality arts program in school show enhanced problem solving skills, improved academic performance, better focus, creative thinking and a sense of accountability. 

 

Last year, the benevolence of our parents and community members helped FFS raise enough to fund a unique arts class for EVERY grade in this school year.

 

 

Technology Programs

 

Technology continues to evolve and it is important to prepare our students for the world ahead.  Our teachers need the right tools and a relevant curriculum so we can reach this goal.  

 

 

Over the past few years the FFS community has been able to fund new iPads and laptops for the school, as well as a digital literacy curriculum program to help give our students a solid technical foundation.
