On Giving Tuesday, nonprofits, like Elgin Academy, benefit from their communities coming together in support of shared values and visions, and a better future for all. The real success of Giving Tuesday is the impact your gift will have on our faculty and students. Support Elgin Academy on Tuesday, December 1st. #GivingTuesday
The phrase, “We Are All Together” has never been more meaningful and our mission of inspiring students to become our creative, courageous, and compassionate future has never been more important.
This unprecedented year has brought us together in ways we could not have imagined and our community has risen to all of the challenges with which 2020 has presented us, beginning with shouldering the numerous unplanned expenses to ready our campus for in-person learning this past fall. Our tremendous faculty has employed all of their considerable skill, actively seeking professional development and preparing to teach both remotely and in-person this year. We have invested in and integrated technology in a way that makes our remote teaching more effective and ensuring that our students’ experiences are the best possible.
Your support is needed now more than ever. Our annual fund-raising Hilltopper Fund goal this year is $525,000. This goal will support Elgin Academy’s mission and help us meet the additional expenses we have seen due to COVID-19. Please consider supporting our Hilltopper Fund as generously as you possibly can. Make a donation or pledge today. Thank you!
Recently, Ms. Boborci's third graders read an article all about kelp in their Time for Kids magazine. Madigan Boborci ('19) who is a second year marine biology major at UCSB was kind enough to harvest some kelp and give the students a first hand lesson on its importance in the temperate waters off the coast of Santa Barbara. She was even able to point out Santa Cruz Island, the spot that was featured in the magazine! It's so great when our alums come back to share their knowledge with current EA students!
Mrs. Boborci's third grade students welcomed Sergeant Vivirito to share his experience in Iraq in honor of Veterans Day. The students listen to Sergeant Vivirito talk about his experiences in the military and thanked him for his service.
The third grade families provided a list of Veteran friends and family who will be receiving cards from the students as well. Thank you to all the Veterans for their service!
