Help Wonder Finish Strong!
We are at the end of our Wonder season with just one week left! What a year it’s been. We grew from just a handful of families and 30 students our first year in 2020 to almost 40 families and 100 students this year! We’ve been amazed at the growth of each student and humbled by the testimonials from the families who say Wonder’s Homeschool Day has been the highlight of their child’s week.
Students of all ages from infant to high school seniors are learning about music and the arts. Learning and playing orchestra and band instruments in ensembles, singing beautiful choral music in choir, introductions to a variety of rhythmic instruments and musical concepts in our littles music classes, exploring fine art techniques during art class, and more. Most importantly, students learn to build character in a faith-based, family-focused, and community-centered environment.
We started with a $20,000 end-of-year fundraising goal on 2/22/22 and, with the help of a small number of Wonder families and friends, were able to raise a total of $9,273 in 2 months! That’s pretty impressive but we still need $10,727 to finish the year strong and prepare for next year’s Homeschool Day program.
Here’s where we need your help…
As some of you may know, our co-director Helen Scott was diagnosed with Bilateral Bell’s Palsy at the start of Wonder this year in September 2021 due to her pregnancy. Because Helen’s condition was on both sides of her face, she was unable to communicate verbally, experienced significant vision loss, and missed the first 3 months of Wonder. In addition, our co-director Corey Scott has been experiencing painful episodic cluster headaches since March 20th of this year causing him to be debilitated and unable to work for hours each day. These two major health challenges have not stopped Wonder from having a wonderful year. However, these roadblocks have presented significant challenges to both Corey and Helen who volunteer their time to run the Homeschool Day program and are responsible for ensuring Wonder reaches their full fundraising goal for the year.
