All generations dream of passing a better, more fulfilling world on to their children. But today, that dream is being challenged in California by educational funding cutbacks that threaten all co-curricular activities such as sports, drama, music, and arts.

Schools Plus views these programs as central to the healthy pursuit of excellence, the need for expression and development of self-esteem among our young people.

"Dear Schools Plus,

Thank you so much for the check of $12,000.00 dollars. We really appreciate it. We could not function as well without your support. My Leadership teacher says her budget for 3 art classes was only $50.00 dollars per class. That's 1 pencil each student.

Your support enables her to actually buy tempera, acrylic paint, brushes, palettes, markers, scratchboard, watercolors, and all types of different papers. Also, to give the students an exciting curriculum.

We could not survive without you!"

- Julie Turpin, Lawrence Cook Middle School
