The mission of Holy Family School is to instill Catholic values and principles in students and support each student’s efforts to strive for educational excellence. Holy Family seeks to accomplish this mission without sacrificing the principle that an education at Holy Family School should be affordable for all families of the parish. The Legacy of Learning Program gives donors a tax-deductible opportunity to ensure that the school has the resources available to achieve its mission while maintaining the affordability of a Holy Family School education.
All students benefit from the dollars generated by the Legacy of Learning campaign. Staffing, enrichment programs, the arts and sports programs are all supported by this campaign.
For the 2013-2014 school year, the cost of educating each student is approximately $7,566. The gap of more than $1,500 must be bridged through the efforts of Legacy of Learning and the school-wide fundraising programs.
For the past ten years, the Legacy of Learning committee has asked each family, grandparent, supporter of the School and alumni to assess their financial situation and determine what they can give to support the incredible programs that set our School apart. While some funds have been used to support grade-specific programs, the majority of resources have aided all of our school’s students from kindergarten through 8th grade.
Academic resource benefits include use of funds for the library, Spanish and science materials, GAINS program, technology, software and class supplies. For staffing, the program has continued to support the additional classroom time and costs of teacher aides, presence of school nurses, staff development and seminars for faculty, as well as continuing education for teachers. Enrichment programs that continue to benefit include Walk-Through programs, Spirit Ship, Science Camp, Mission trips, CIMI, California Science Center, programs for science, Mock Trial teams, Spirituality programs, Academic Decathlon and more. In the arts, music supplies, our Theater Arts program and Meet the Masters have all benefited through Legacy of Learning contributions. Maintenance of the school, PE and sports programs have also received support through this annual giving campaign.
All gifts are tax deductible and greatly appreciated. Please check with your company about gift matching, as many companies offer it.
