Every single school year we allocate 10% of our current working balance to provide $500 scholarships to our high school seniors that are looking to further their education. Each year, we provide students with scholarship applications that can be accessed through the high school guidance office. Once applications are completed, they should be submitted back to the guidance office. Once the completed applications have been received, our scholarship committee will select the scholarship winners
Each semester, we provide our teachers district-wide with the opportunity to apply for a grant. These grants are provided to teachers who would like to implement projects or programs within the classroom that are not covered within the district's budget. It's our hope that teachers will use these grant opportunities to enrich the education and experiences of their students. Once grant applications have been received, our grant committee will vote and select the winners.
Our foundation could not exist without the support of our Dover community. Throughout the year, our foundation holds various fundraisers and outreach events in an effort to raise funds to support the foundation and ultimately. It truly takes a community in order to support the future of our students. We are always looking for volunteers and support to help bring the mission of the foundation alive. If you have any interest in joining the foundation or helping out at an upcoming event, please let us know!
To demonstrate the Dover Area School District's deep appreciation for the brave men and women who serve to protect our country and citizens, a Veterans' Memorial Committee and the Dover Area School District plan to erect a memorial in honor of all Veterans including Dover Alumni and Staff to highlight the remarkable contributions so many have given.
We are currently selling "2020" Commemorative YETI Mugs as a fundraiser to support the Foundation. These mugs were designed to commemorate the grand opening of the new High School in 2020.
