Coronado – Lights! Camera! Learning! You won’t want to miss the second student-produced Coronado Schools Foundation (CSF) Connect-A-Thon on March 14th, from 5-9pm. Join the fun live at Coronado High School Performing Arts Center and Quad, or tune in from home and watch the live broadcast on Coronado channel 19, iTV channel 16 in San Diego County, or streaming online at www.csfkids.org. With a goal to raise $172,000, these funds will ensure cutting-edge programs will continue at Coronado’s five public schools for the 2013-2014 school year.
This fun-filled community event is highlighted by musical acts from Silver Strand and Village Elementary Schools, a “Gangnam Style” flash mob from Coronado Middle School, and musical theatre drama and hip-hop performances from Coronado High School. Roving reporter Fred Eckert will cover the Quad activities, and the Senior Class will join forces with CSF for a combined food court featuring both barbecue and pizza dining options, with funds raised benefitting both groups.
Coronado Middle School KCMS News Team students film student interviews at Silver Strand Elementary for the March 14th CSF Connect-A-Thon.
Now in its 25th year, the 2013 Connect-A-Thon is the second year the show will be produced by students of Coronado Middle School’s KCMS news team, led by teacher Amy Steward, and Coronado High School’s KCHS-TV news team, led by teacher Angie Tieman. With the Connect-A-Thon being entirely student-produced, you will see the scope of the technologies made available to Coronado public schools by generous donors, in addition to exceptional student talent at work.
With low costs associated with a student-produced event and thanks to the generosity of donors, funds raised at this year’s Connect-A-Thon will support the 2013-14 school year and focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) programs. These include Technology Resource Teachers/Computer Lab Instructors at each campus, Visual & Performing Arts programs at the elementary schools, Science & Math enrichment, Site/Block Grants, Engineering programs, Robotics, and much more. With no public funding for these STEAM programs, our community’s donations are crucial in providing Coronado public school children with a balanced education that enables them to excel in our complex world.
Make your online donation today at www.csfkids.com and receive your Coronado Locals Card for discounts across town. Every effort will be made to read all donors’ names at the March 14th event. With a donation of $250 or more, you will be eligible to win a surfboard, courtesy of Emerald City. Interested in volunteering?
