108 , CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March U- March 14, 2005 The Jefferson School Giving Campaign00under way The Jefferson School's Annual Giving Campaign is under way. This year, the board of directors kicked off the campaign with a collective contribution of $10,000. The campaign goal for 2005 is $30,000, with a fundrais- ing target date of April 1. Located on 43 wooded acres on Wilson Road near Georgetown, The Jefferson School is an inde- pendent, coeducational day school with a mission and ap- proach that's designedto foster an enthusiasm for learning in an at- mosphere of academic excellence. Voted "The Best Private School Downstate" by the Delaware To- day Readers Poll in 2004, The Jef- ferson School uses developmen- tally-appropriate and innovative teaching tools, which stimulate intellectual curiosity, academic performance and social commit- ment. A very low student to teacher ratio, and full- time assis- tants in all lower school class- rooms, allow for a high degree of individualized instruction. New and noteworthy achieve- ments in 2005 include: the addi- tion of elective courses for stu- dents, a schoolwide, multicultural study of Greece, a revitalized Par- ents' Association, multiple grant awards for program funding, on campus music instruction through The Delaware Music School, an expanded board of directors and a formalized long range plan. Present goals include building up the scholarship program, in- creasing teacher compensation, adding new programs and enhanc- ing existing ones. The annual giv- ing fund contributes to the realiza- tion of these goals. The Jefferson School is com- mitted to keeping tuition at an af- fordable level. To accomplish this, relying on fundralsing efforts and the generous support of par- ents and friends of The Jefferson School is essential. To help the Jefferson School achieve its cam- paign goal, call Tricia Ratner at 644-9191 or Kelly Dunn Gelof at 856-1450; or send a contribution directly to the campus at 22051 Wilson Road, Georgetown, DE 19947.
