  • The holiday season is upon us!

    In the spirit of the season, Endeavor is hosting an event to recognize the existing partners and sponsors of our school. Our current partners provide food for cafe days, classes for our enrichment students and additional learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. Our current sponsors provide funds that allow us to finance technology projects around the school.

    In addition to showing thanks, the holiday season is also about giving to others. Local community members and businesses are also being invited to our event to learn about becoming official sponsors of Endeavor. Being an official sponsor of Endeavor can take many forms and has many benefits. Some sponsors may provide our school with financial donations, while others may send their employees to work with our students and staff. 

    Endeavor's Premier Partners Open House will be on Wednesday, December 2nd from 9:00 am to 10:30 am. Our current and future sponsors and partners will learn about what makes Endeavor special and about our partnership and sponsorship opportunities, as well as take a tour of our school. 

    We already have many confirmed guests for our event; it is going to be a great morning to educate our community about what a successful and wonderful place Endeavor is.
