On November 4, 2009 the Niagara Charter School located at 2077 Lockport Road, Niagara Falls, New York 14304 will be holding their first Chinese Auction from 5pm -8pm in the school gymnasium. This event is to raise funds for the Playground/Sports/Technology project.
There are two fields on the property that are both 30,000 square feet of unutilized green space. Building a modern, interactive playground and multi-use sports field would greatly benefit the students physically, mentally and socially. The playground/sports field and basketball court will allow the school to offer a more complete educational and physical fitness experience for current and future students. This project will provide health and wellness opportunities to a student population that is nearly 90% minority with approximately 92% of the total student body at, or below, the poverty level. The use of computers and updated software and tools, will allow for our students learning to be enhanced. They will be able to explore various opportunities that they cannot reach due to the lack of technology currently in the school.
The expected cost of the project is $70,000-$90,000 and Niagara Charter School has raised approximately $37,000.00 to date. Niagara Charter School would greatly appreciate your help in reaching this target goal. Any donations you can make towards the Chinese Auction (gift certificate, money, tickets, gift card, gift basket, etc.) would help our project become a reality!
