SPS Foundation Stay at HOMEcoming Tailgate Raffle Drawing
Friday from 10:00 AM - 10:30 AM CDT
Due to Covid-19, we will not be able to gather together as a community for our annual SPS Foundation Homecoming Tailgate. We are extremely disappointed. Not only is the Tailgate a wonderful community celebration, it is the Sikeston Public Schools Foundation’s largest fundraiser.
Even though we cannot come together in-person, we are still asking you to buy a $5 virtual ticket to our Stay at HOMEcoming Tailgate. Each ticket purchase will be entered into our Homecoming Raffle. Morlan Dodge has graciously donated a truck bed full of tailgating supplies to the Foundation for us to raffle off to one lucky winner!! There is no limit on how many tickets that you can purchase! The more you buy, the more chances for you to win!
We rely heavily on the funds raised by our Tailgate to fund classroom teaching grants across SPS. Over the past 6 years, the SPS Foundation has awarded over $150,000 in classroom teaching grants. These classroom grants fund items that enhance learning in our classrooms. In addition to the classroom grants, the Foundation also funds other educational opportunities for our students such as paying for the entire junior class to take the ACT, sending young women to Missouri Girls State, and sending our senior music students to the St. Louis Symphony.
The SPS Foundation exists solely on the generosity of our community. We are extremely thankful that we live in a community that strongly supports Sikeston Public Schools. We hope that you will buy a ticket, or several tickets, to our Stay at HOMEcoming Tailgate this year so that we can continue to give back to our teachers and students. Covid-19 is altering how we do things, but it will not eliminate the educational needs of our students and teachers.
