Giving to SRS
At SRS, we believe education combines multiple aspects of learning, both in and outside the classroom. But teaching in this manner isn’t easy—and it can be expensive. It requires qualified, dedicated teachers to inspire learning, a wide variety of academic courses to challenge students, instructional tools to spark creativity, scholarship and financial aid programs to attract students who invigorate our community, and a broad range of arts and athletics to educate the whole child.
Our tuition covers less than 70% of what it costs to educate each SRS student. Your donations enable us to continue to provide outstanding educational experiences via a true community of learning.
We are grateful for your investments in SRS. Ultimately, the greatest gift we can give our students is to surround them with the teachers, peers and resources to nurture their full potential. Your gifts help make this possible. There are a number of ways that you can contribute to the SRS experience.
The Robert S. Hicks Scholarship Fund
Named in memory of the late Robert Hicks, original owner of the SRS property and grandfather of current principal, Matthew Hicks. Robert loved children and was dedicated to the success of all SRS students. The fund provides financial assistance to those who may not be able to afford annual tuition. Every year, funds are allocated to deserving students who contribute to making SRS the community of learning that it is today.
Annual Gifts to SRS
Your generous annual gifts can be made at any time of year and help provide the highest quality teachers, offer financial aid to deserving students, and maintain exceptional facilities, technology, and outstanding fine arts and athletics programs to prepare students for their futures.
The “Heron’s Nest” School Store
The Heron’s Nest is stocked with school supplies, textbooks, healthy snacks, and official SRS Heron Mascot clothing. Families may place a clothing order via phone with The Heron’s Nest staff if they do not live locally. 100% of the proceeds generated from The Heron’s Nest go to the Robert S. Hicks Scholarship fund.
The SRS Parent-Teacher Group
The SRS Parent-Teacher Group is a non-profit (501c3) organization comprised of dedicated parents and teachers who work together to raise funds that benefit the entire school community. Over the past several years, the PTG has provided new playground and fitness equipment, smart boards for classrooms, a music recording studio, as well as campus enhancements such as park benches and plantings. The group also organizes school-wide, family oriented activities such as Welcome Back and End of Year picnics, movie nights, and informational sessions with guest speakers on a variety of topics geared towards parents. All donations to the PTG are tax deductible.
