The STEAM and Servants campaign is a reflection of the clear understanding at Cross Schools that we need to continue to fortify creative and innovative learning opportunities for all students, especially in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. Our commitment to maintaining our status as the premier private school choice in the Lowcountry means that this investment needs to be ongoing and evolving.
Perhaps even more importantly, we at Cross know that it is our ability to attract and retain top-notch faculty and staff that sets us apart from all other schools in the region. From the earliest levels of preschool to Honors offerings for our first Freshman class, we intentionally seek out motivated, engaging, and highly qualified employees who are committed to the idea of excellence in Christian education.
The giving opportunity of STEAM and Servants is a time for our families to continue to partner with us as we grow into a school of distinction. Your monetary donation will be split equally between our STEAM initiatives that directly impact students in the classroom, and our Servants program that provides a Christmas bonus for all of our employees with the exception of the Head of School.
We have been intentional and thoughtful in the design of this program. We understand that our families continue to be desirous of expressing appreciation for the Cross faculty and staff, especially in this season, and contributing to STEAM and Servants is the best way to do just that. No more wondering about how to get multiple gifts for multiple teachers, assistants, and support staff. The gift will be split equitably among all who serve…and now, your donations to recognize teachers and staff are all tax-deductible to the extent allowable.
Our goal for our annual STEAM and Servants fund is not, and will never be tied to a dollar amount. Our greatest desire with this endeavor is to have 100% of Cross families participate in giving. Hitting that 100% goal says definitively that our entire school community stands united in our commitment to providing the resources that are needed to continue to cultivate a rich learning experience for all students at Cross Schools!
