I'm excited to share that Charlotte Lab School was recently awarded a $5,000 grant through Lowe's Toolbox for Education Grants Program.
This funding will be used to create a Mobile Science Cart capable of transforming any of our classrooms into a fully functioning science lab with equipment ranging from motors and gears to circuits and 3D printers. Be on the lookout for the roll out of this project at the Middle School in Fall 2018!
In other funding news, we have raised $246,892 towards our $275,000 Innovation Fund goal. However, that means we still need $28,108 to close the gap by May 30th. That's just 18 days! Please make a donation, if you have not already, or if you think that you can give a little more, that would be greatly appreciated!
It is also a great time to reach out to grandparents and other families and ask for their help with the final push. 58% of our families who do not receive financial assistance have made a donation this year. We hope for that number to reach 100% by the end of the campaign. You can help by reminding your friends to make a donation before time runs out!
