School Fund Raiser

Litchfield Community Schools

Alumni Association Board

March 31, 2022

The Alumni Association has raised over $159,000.00 for the Litchfield Community Schools over the past 16 years.  The teachers and staff are very appreciative of our contributions toward improving the educational experience for them and the students.

We have received the following request from Cristina Eyre, K-12 Principal:

Bookworms Middle School Literacy curriculum was purchased with support of Litchfield Alumni Association. These curriculum resources have provided a solid, comprehensive set of resources covering reading, writing, and spelling skills with all our sixth through eighth graders.

The best description of our fund request is for a comprehensive literacy curriculum from O’Dell Curriculum for the high school. This is the recommended curriculum to follow the Middle School Bookworms Curriculum purchased this past year through Open Up Resources.

Students from the High School would benefit with a sequential sequencing to previous curriculum utilized in the middle school. This sequence would provide consistent curriculum covering reading, writing, and research skills that will scaffold from the previous year.

During our February meeting the Alumni Board approved a fundraising campaign to purchase the Middle/High School portion of the program. We would like to raise at least $10,550.00 this year to fully pay for this final phase of the literacy replacement program.  These new programs have brought the curriculum up to the current standards and should allow the school to stay current.

The board feels that this is a good cause to support the future of the children of Litchfield.  Please send your donation checks made out to “Litchfield Alumni Association” to the Treasurer’s address below.
