Summer School Intervention Fees

We have the opportunity to help at risk students attend summer school intervention classes to help them advance to the next grade level! These are all students who do not have the financial means to pay the fees, and the school district provides a deep discount to those in need. Our goal is to raise $3000 to support 60 or more Westerville students this summer!
