It’s Big Cheese time! Welcome to our annual (lighthearted) campaign that helps us lead our amazing, ambitious high school students reach their potential.
We’re investing in people
The Big Cheese is not just about raising money — it’s about making a real impact. But how do we do that?
Earlier this fall, our families hosted gatherings to share what is making the biggest impact in their students’ lives right now. Our priorities for this campaign come directly out of those conversations. What came through repeatedly was one single theme:
The best way to have a lasting influence on quality education is to invest in the teachers who deliver it.
So this year’s biggest priority is investing in our faculty: supporting our current faculty and recruiting and hiring new faculty for the continued growth and excellence of the school.
We’re investing in our kids’ futures
Our other priorities serve to strengthen our students’ experience. When they leave school and enter the real world, they should be able to say, “this looks familiar; we practiced for this.”
Preparing for the future includes an immediate investment in:
- Labs, project-making equipment, and human-centered spaces
- Students’ real-world skills and experiences
- Need-based scholarships for a diverse student body
Let’s raise some cheddar together!
The Big Cheese is about building Waterloo together. Gifts of all sizes help us meet our goals, and we want you to be a part of this exciting new chapter! Every gift makes a difference.
For those who have the means, will you consider a gift of $1500, $2000, $5000, or more?
Or course, all contributions are tax-deductible.
Oh queso, you feta brie-lieve we’re nacho ordinary school — help us go from Gouda to Grate!
