Welcome to The Foundation’s Website!

The Foundation is a non-profit, grassroots organization whose mission is to  provide unique educational enrichment opportunities for all students in the Clinton Township school district.  The Foundation is operated by a Board of Trustees, working in conjunction with the Board of Education and school district representatives.  The Foundation is committed to funding innovative educational programs, services and material/equipment purchases initiated through grants from teachers and administrators in the Clinton Township school district.  It is important to note that these programs and services would not otherwise be funded through the regular school budget.  In this way, the Foundation truly enhances the education of every student in the Clinton Township school district — providing enrichment beyond everyday education!

Reach for the Stars

stars

Join us in reaching new heights by providing our students and teachers the opportunity to learn, compete and reach their full potential.  Invest with us through our Reach for the Stars campaign.  Together, we can fulfill grant requests that will launch technology initiatives, expand our media centers, assist our music and art programs and pilot new forward-thinking academic programs throughout the district.  The sky really is the limit when we work together!

To commemorate this campign the foundation will sponsor an actual star for each of our 4 schools.  Information about each star will be available this spring in our media centers for teachers and students to explore together for many years to come.  Certificates of authenticity and information will be proudly framed and displayed along with a listing of our “Star Supporters” who contributed to this campaign.  The listing of supporters will also be proudly displayed on our website and annual report.  Please make a tax-deductible investment and help us shine bright.
