FRIENDS OF QUAKER VALLEY SCHOOLS Education Foundation was founded with a vision to help the students in the Quaker Valley School District in the Leetsdale/Sewickley, PA area. With more than 400 students under the poverty limit, now more than ever, we need funds to help support the programs that will give these students a chance to participate in life-changing activities. Children who are involved and active are more successful in their academics and life. The Education Foundation provides scholarships and awards to students who excel because they were given the support and chance to become motivated and successful students. We help to provide that motivation and drive to succeed. Furthermore, "FRIENDS" provides support by underwriting our Community Worker who helps students have access and participate in after-school activities to prevent at-risk behaviors. It funds the after-school Arts/Robotics programs promoting technology and the arts to give the students an outstanding state-of-the-art after-school experience to succeed in a technologically advanced society. We have underwritten the Cyber-Wellness Center at the Middle School to help students live healthier lives and "Excercise to Success". My children have all graduated or will graduate from the Quaker Valley School District and I am confident that they have received the most outstanding education and opportunity for success, in part, because they are supported by the FRIENDS OF QUAKER VALLEY SCHOOLS Education Foundation. "FRIENDS" is truly a friend to the school district, community, parents, and students. They give hope to students who may otherwise fall behind in an ever-changing and progressive world. "FRIENDS" supports and cares for the stuents with diligence and drive to make a difference in their lives. I whole-heartedly support the FRIENDS OF QUAKER VALLEY SCHOOLS Education Foundation and I hope you will do the same.
