What is the Immersion Support Fund and what does it pay for?
This fund generated by friends and family of McDonald International students, pays for the Immersion Assistants staffed in each language immersion classroom. These staff members instantly cut the student teacher ratio in half in the immersion classroom, making for a much more responsive learning environment for our kids.

How much do I need to donate?
The cost of providing this level of support to our children is $1000 per student per year. This is a large amount of money for any family. Our goal is that EVERY family gives WHAT THEY CAN. 100% participation is the most important goal to the PTA! At the same time, $1000 per year is a value for what you are investing in.

How Can I Donate?
We must raise this money by April of 2013. Last year we heard from many parents requesting a method of automatic monthly giving in order to spread the burden out over the year. We have two options for monthly giving. The preferred option is through your bank Auto Pay or Bill Pay service. The other option is by credit card.
