Tonight’s Fund the Need will benefit special projects at Miriam’s K-12 programs. Your generous contribution will help give our unique learners some experiences they may not have otherwise. Our goal for this evening’s Fund the Need is $20,000.
Musical Production – Miriam Lower/Middle School
A musical production will deliver academic advantages as well as outlets for creativity, student engagement and teamwork. More importantly, it will build a positive community spirit among our unique learners, as well as with Miriam supporters. Miriam will collaborate with a local performing arts organization to enhance student engagement and establish a relationship for future musical productions.
$3,000-$5,000 to purchase sets, costumes, etc. to make it all happen
Apple iPads – Miriam High School
As an educational tool, iPads can enhance learning in the classroom. Teachers will be given the opportunity to engage our unique learners more effectively in daily classwork. The wealth of apps and learning tools available with an iPad will help improve the educational experience in the classroom.
$5,000-$10,000 to purchase 35 iPads for the junior and senior classes
Basketball and Baseball Uniforms – Miriam High School
Participation in sports will lead our unique learners to demonstrate more confidence, leadership and self-respect. It also allows them to be active and social outside the classroom.
