Donate to the Student Support & Outreach (SSO) Fund

If you've pledged a student for the 2014 Move-A-Thon or just want to donate to the Student Support & Outreach (SSO) Fund, this is the place.

Donate to the Student Support and Outreach Fund

‚ÄčThanks for your support of McDonald International's SSO Fund. SSOF dollars are spent in the current school year to benefit all McDonald students - it pays for everything funded by the PTA except for Immersion Support (which funds our IAs and IIs) - everything from supplemental materials for curriculum and programs, special projects, teacher mini-grants, technology in the classrooms, support for our McDonald Int'l library, field trip scholarships so all students can participate, and so much more over the years:

  • Literacy tutors and math programs in the classroom
  • Reading library leveled books in English, Japanese and Spanish
  • Teacher mini-grants for supplemental teaching aids and classroom materials
  • Special enrichment projects inside and outside the classroom
  • Field trip and After School Activities scholarships so every student can participate
  • Supplemental arts and music program at McDonald
  • Our school directory to keep us all connected
  • Community events
  • and more

100% of the donations received will benefit McDonald International students and are tax deductible!

Payment by Check (Preferred)
