The Groundwork - Wrapping up a great year!
Angelo Passarelli on 06/29/2017
We are wrapping up another year for the Millard Schools and the Foundation. This has been a successful year with many activities. The Foundation has been around for over 30 years and in addition to operating Kids Network before and after school child-care programs at all 25 schools, we raise funds for grants and scholarships. We feel the need to ramp up support for Millard Schools. The state continues to cut school funding, so it is up to the Foundation to support the school system. This year we approved funding over 2.5 million for grants and technology. These programs help make Millard world class.
Donations are up – we have a very generous community that supports the Foundation with dollars for scholarships, special events like Hall of Fame and Golf and for memorials. Over 650 people attended the Hall of Fame, which was a great night celebrating everything that makes Millard schools so special. We celebrated outstanding scholarship achievements by our students, great teaching, outstanding support staff, and selfless community volunteerism. Join us next year! The 27th anniversary Golf Classic was a tremendous success. The event sold out in April, the earliest ever (216 golfers on three nines). These funds will support grants and projects in Millard Schools, including helping Millard families in crisis.
We can’t do it without a supportive and giving community. Please join us in supporting our Millard Schools! Thank you for your support.

Hall of Fame – May 11, 2018 Embassy Suites LaVista
Golf – June 8, 2018 The Players Club at Deer Creek
Summer Kids Network is in full swing. We have 7 summer consolidation sites with approximately 780 students enrolled in our summer program. The children are spending their days, swimming, hiking through the Laurtizen Garden, visiting Memorial Stadium, and many more countless field trips to name. The children are also enjoying fun and educational activities at the site. New to one of our locations this year is a partnership with the YMCA, where they are offering a STEM based program for students enrolled in grades 3-5. We hope to expand this beneficial program in the coming years.
