2011-12 ANNUAL GIVING CAMPAIGN ~ LOA FIELD OF DREAMS
The success of Lake Oconee Academy has been built on small class size, a personal touch from teachers and staff, and a commitment that each child’s academic success is of utmost importance. The present program at LOA has been subsidized by a one-time Federal Implementation Grant. The grant is designed to assist charter schools as they implement and establish their academic programs. Sustaining the programs after the life of the grant is the responsibility of the school.
LOA aspires to make the transition without sacrificing any of its fundamental principles of Scholarship, Citizenship and Community. To accomplish this goal, the present per student funding allotment must continue to be used solely for educational programs. Additional funding will be needed to ensure the addition of the extracurricular programs – arts, music and athletics – of a well-rounded education.
The focus of the 2011-12 Annual Giving Campaign is the completion of a baseball/softball field on the LOA campus.
A Message from the LOA Parent's Association:
Lake Oconee Academy is a young school, so in order to broaden student opportunities relatively quickly, we support the need to raise funds via the Annual Giving Campaign. Offering exceptional extracurricular programs - athletics, science labs, language programs, music and theater - in conjunction with a stellar academic curriculum is essential for our students to compete with the “best of the best.” The addition of the baseball/softball field will be a wonderful opportunity for our students, and something that we can share with our community.
Your contribution, no matter what amount you are able to give, really does make a difference. Every donation is a clear indication that as responsible and interested parents and community members, we take a sense of pride, ownership and accountability to help secure the future of LOA. It is a sign of gratitude and faith in our school that LOA will be here for generations to come. Please partner with us and help us build our Field of Dreams.
