Student posing in class

Formed in 1996, FOSS is a 501(c)3 charity charged with the goal of raising money to ensure Slavens students don’t lose out on a well-rounded education featuring key courses including art, music, foreign language and STEM.

Giving our kids access to these extras not only makes for a better school experience, but helps create future leaders and great thinkers. Recent FOSS funding includes paying the salary of our STEM facilitator, as well as providing a new sound system for the gym/auditorium, band scholarships, Spanish books and art festival support, among other gifts.

FOSS is dedicated to giving the extras to every child, every day but we can’t do it without every family participating. We recommend $150 per student (that’s less than $1 per day), but no donation is too small. If we all give what we can, we will reach our annual goal!
