Join EUBA as we celebrate our local McCutcheon Elementary school and raise money to fund their afterschool program for school year 2017!
There will be live music, drinks and heavy hors d'oeuvres! You can purchase tickets today and/or donate on GoFundMe!
With a total of 400 students, McCutcheon Elementary School takes pride in its diverse student population. However, nearly 30% of the students identify as homeless and 98% live below the poverty line. Because of this, it is very important that faculty and staff go the extra mile to ensure that students get a head start on college and career readiness.
Prior to the 2017 school year, McCutcheon had managed to outperform their peers in reading and math. Unfortunately, due to budget cuts, the school lost it's funding and was no longer able to afford an ongoing after school program to provide additional assistance to their students for the purposes of academic achievement and extracurricular enrichment. Effective after-school programs yield positive outcomes for youth, families, and communities. With your help, we hope to develop and maintain a well-rounded after school program at McCutcheon Elementary School where students can enjoy an experiential learning experience outside of the classroom.
For most of the students at McCutcheon Elementary, easy access to these kinds of activities is just a dream but with your donation, we can make this dream a reality. Please consider giving today to enhance a child's tomorrow!
