Businesses

Adopt A School can be a commitment of time, resources or expertise of a business to an individual public school. The partnership is uniquely designed to bring about positive outcomes for all those involved.

Below are some ideas:

  • Academic Enrichment/Career Awareness: provide readers for classes; host job shadowing opportunities; conduct interview skills workshops; participate in career days; serve as resource speakers or tutors; provide field trips to a business or other educational setting such as the Napa Valley Museum
  • Student Incentives/Motivation: sponsor awards for bringing up grades, most improved student, perfect attendance; sponsor academic awards banquet, citizenship projects, students of the month; be a mentor for a student
  • Improving School Environment: donate equipment; assist with landscaping; participate in clean up days or beautification projects at school
  • Faculty Support and Recognition: host a “Thank You” reception for teachers; award mini-grants for teachers or departments; recognize teachers during American Education Week or Teacher Appreciation Week
  • Community Involvement: assist families in need; supplement clothes closet for school; furnish school supplies; host a school fundraiser or program; sponsor a community event (carnival, movie night, festival, etc.)
