Park Middle School

Funding for Yearbooks

Please consider donating to this Fund a Need campaign that will provide students who cannot afford to purchase a yearbook with the 2019-2020 Park Middle School yearbook. 

A little bit about Park Middle School:  Park is a school of approximately 900 students. Of our 900 students we are nearly 68% free and reduced lunch. Those demographics tell us that for around 612 students, affording a yearbook isn't a feasible option.  Each yearbook costs $22.25 and therefore a contribution of $445 ($507.42 after fees) would provide 20 students with a yearbook and ultimately lasting memories as well.

Morley Elementary Band: Help Us Round Out Our Sound!

The Morley Elementary Band experienced great growth in the 2019-2020 school year -- from 24 members in the 2018-2019 school year to 40 members this year. Because of this tremendous growth, we are asking for your help in obtaining a student model tuba.

Last year, no student played the tuba because the school does not own a tuba and music stores do not typically rent student model tubas. This year, three students were interested in playing the tuba, but we could only accept one student and only because we were able to borrow a student model tuba from an LPS middle school.

Of course, availability of instruments from another school is never guaranteed, so having a school tuba at Morley would ensure at least one student can play tuba every year. All of the students -- as a whole band -- would greatly benefit from having a tuba player, as it provides a bass voice for the group. Please consider donating to the Morley Elementary Band! Requesting $2,133 plus cost reimbursement.

Touching the Sky!

There is something about the night sky that just captures the imagination. This campaign provides students with a quality telescope that can track objects in the sky and is set up for astral-photography.  Your gifts will help students connect with nature in a way they can appreciate for the rest of their lives. Few of our students will grow up to be physicists or astronomers but they can ALL learn to appreciate the beauty of the night sky and this telescope will let them capture some of their favorite images and keep them forever. Requesting $1,800 plus cost reimbursement.

The specific telescope we are aiming for:

Celestron's Advanced VX 8-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope (SCT) delivers the "big scope experience" at the low end of the size and price ranges for large, sophisticated telescopes. With superb tracking and superior optics, this configuration is ready for serious visual observation and astrophotography. Compared to most "starter" telescopes and basic amateur telescopes, this instrument represents a step into a tier of instruments that require a significant investment of time and money. It will take you time to set up the sophisticated mount. It will require some delicious — but time-consuming — learning to understand what the scope can do and how it does it. And this telescope costs as much as a good-quality big-screen TV! But the universe will pay you back, many times over, in celestial trophies you really can't bag any other way.
