As part of our 40th Reunion activities we are going to participate with the Grosse Pointe Foundation for Public Schools and the Boll Foundation in raising funds for Grosse Pointe North High School. For every dollar that is raised through our Charter Class of 1970, the Boll Foundation will match it with two dollars.  We will be presenting a check to the Grosse Pointe Foundation for Public Education with the money earmarked for Grosse Pointe North at our 40th Reunion.

The Grosse Pointe Foundation for Public Education is a foundation that was formed by a dedicated group of residents who were conerned about maintaining excellence in the Grosse Pointe schools.  Its purpose is to raise money to fund initiatives that are not included in state funding. 

The John and Marlene Boll Foundation announced this year the $500,000 Boll Technology Challenge Grant.  The grant will be used to update the technology in all Grosse Pointe schools with items like SmartBoards, which we will see a demo of during our tour of Grosse Pointe North High School on Saturday, June 19, 2010 from 11:00am to 12:30pm.

We appreciate all classmates stepping up and giving back to Grosse Pointe North not only because we all have benefited from this great high school education but because every dollar we donate will be matched with two more!

Thank you.
