Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
- Nelson Mandela
Funds raised at the We Are E.R.! Dinner & Auction are used to invest in educational excellence, inside and outside of the classroom in order to prepare our students to be the leaders of tomorrow.
Your help and support are needed more now than ever. The state budget cuts to education present a huge challenge but they are not an excuse to provide anything less than world-class educational excellence. That is Elk Rapids Schools' tradition and commitment to our students and our future.
This year's proceeds from the We Are E.R.! Dinner & Auction, will be used to:
Pay the LAST annual bond loan for the renovated athletic complex!!!!!!!
Invest in supporting and expanding the educational programing like the world renowned International Baccalaureate program, the arts and foreign language
Support our teachers by providing needed resources and supplies
At Elk Rapids Schools, our focus must continue to be on making the investments that will provide our students with the skills they need to succeed in the 21st Century. These skills include technology, communication, problem-solving, innovation, collaboration, creativity, community service and global awareness.
We hope you share our passion for educational excellence and are willing to put that passion into action by supporting this fundraising event for Elk Rapids Schools. We greatly appreciate any support you are able to offer by volunteering your time, talents and/or treasures.
