As many of you know, the Enrichment Program has carried out an annual fundraising program and sought private grants to fund the Enrichment Teacher salary as well as to fund school-wide assemblies, performances, and resources. We are happy to announce that, as of the 2009-10 school year, the Gunnison Watershed School District will fully fund the Enrichment Teacher salary and benefits. The Enrichment Program continues, however, to rely solely on funding from private donations and grants to support special artistic and cultural activities, including school assemblies, performances, and artist-in-residence programs.
Thank you for your continued support of these enriching experiences for our students through the Enrichment Program. Have a wonderful summer!
