We are incredibly grateful to be back together again with all of you for the ‘20-‘21 school year. We hope each of your families are healthy and well during this challenging, unprecedented time in our world.
We are honored to chair Logan’s Annual Fund Committee this year and to have the opportunity to give back to the school that has given so much to our family. Our oldest, JB, is in his sixth year at Logan in IS, and Mac, our youngest is in his second year at Logan in Upper Primary.
We discovered Logan during a difficult time in our lives –we were navigating life with a sick baby when we realized that JB needed a school like Logan in order to thrive. After JB’s trusted preschool director told us he “must” be at Logan, we applied, and he started that fall. It seemed as if Logan was magically designed specifically for JB and we instantly knew how bright his future would be because of The Logan School. Fast-forward three years and we were celebrating the bright future of both our children. JB was loving Logan and Mac was now healthy, happy, and ready to start kindergarten. Fortunately, Logan was in Mac’s future as well. Mac couldn’t have been more excited to begin at Logan last year, and although thrilled to be with his big brother, Logan has paved the way for Mac to blaze his own trail. We have two very different kids and somehow, Logan is a perfect fit for each of them.
“Vote JB Breit for a Bright Future! 2048” was JB’s government unit campaign slogan last spring and we felt it fitting to borrow from JB and use #ABrightFuture as the theme for this year’s Annual Fund. While living through this dual pandemic, our community has demonstrated resiliency,empathy, adaptability, courage, and hope for a brighter future. Despite the challenges and uncertainties we face right now, one thing is certain – Logan is playing a pivotal role in creating that brighter future for all of our kids. Logan is here to nurture our learners, to cultivate our students’ curiosities, to support our children’s brave exploration of diverse units, to fuel our community’s love of learning,and to ensure that our future is bright.
So, how can we ensure that Logan’s future is also bright?This is where the Annual Fund comes in. You may be surprised to know that tuition alone does not cover all the costs of a Logan education. The Annual Fund exists to bridge that gap between the actual cost of educating a Logan student and the cost of tuition. This year, that difference is $2300 per student.
When we ask for you to support Logan’s Annual Fund, our goal is two-fold: 1) 100% participation from each Logan family and 2) a total dollar amount to “bridge the gap.”
One hundred percent participation is essential. When every family gives, it conveys a powerful message that our community is committed to Logan’s bright future. That commitment is critically important when The Logan School applies for funding from foundations or corporate grants outside of our community. With regard to our monetary goal, we ask that you give what feels right for your family. If you are able, we ask that you “bridge the gap” with a gift of $2,300. And remember that a gift, in any amount, will ensure that Logan’s future continues to shine bright.
You will be hearing from us and our amazing committee of parent volunteers between now and Colorado Gives Day on December 8. As we ask you to participate in the AnnualFund, we recognize what a difficult time this is and thank you in advance for considering a meaningful contribution. When looking at the Logan community, we are reminded every day that our future holds something bright. This year in particular, it is our sincere hope that we can come together as a community to ensure a bright future for all Logan students.
