Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School Annual Appeal 2016

November 2016

Dear BFCCPS Parent/Guardian:

We sincerely hope that you are pleased with and inspired by BFCCPS as the school for educating your child. BFCCPS continues to utilize all available resources to educate our students in a way that will prepare them as global citizens who strive to achieve greatness.  As we enter our 22nd year, it is with great pride that we can reflect back on reaching many critical milestones, including our continued outstanding performance on standardized tests across all grades, national recognition as a school of character, and the integration of technology into the BFCCPS curriculum that helps to prepare our students for the digital age.

Over the past few years, with your help and generosity, we have continued to bring technology into the classrooms to infuse into our daily classroom routines.  We have been able to equip our Kindergarteners to eighth graders with Google Chromebooks, mini laptops and iPads.  Last year, we upgraded the laptops of all of our teachers to assist them in planning and executing content in the classroom.

We are asking you to contribute to the BFCCPS 2016-2017 Annual Appeal Fund, which will enable the school to maintain steady progress on this technology plan.   This year, the annual appeal is specifically focused on increasing our inventory of Chromebooks, iPads, and upgrading our WiFi connectivity within the classrooms.  If each family was able to donate $100.00, we would reach our fundraising goal of $30,000.  That would enable us to achieve the following milestones:


  • Grades K to 2- Complete iPad Coverage
  • Grades 3 to 8- 1:1 Chromebooks
  • Improved WiFi access in learning areas


Weekly drawings will be held each Friday during the month of December, so the earlier you’re able to donate, the more chances you will have to win.  You’ll even earn additional entries in the drawings for every $100 donation you make to this year’s Annual Appeal. We are thrilled to announce that we have been given TWO Chromebooks from our generous technology partners, tickets for a family of four to the FSPA production of “Humbug” and more! 

BFCCPS is a non-profit organization and your donation is tax deductible.  We thank you in advance for your gift; we know it’s from the heart.

With best regards,

Heather Zolnowski                   Jason Fine

BFCCPS Head of School         President, BFCCPS Board of Trustees
