Dear Carlmont High School Community,

Tomorrow, Tuesday, May 3rd, is Silicon Valley Gives Day and the Carlmont Academic Foundation (CAF) needs your help!

ralphCrame_headshotCAF’s mission is to keep class sizes smaller (25% reduction in the last two years), provide more class options and prepare Carlmont students for the future, and this can happen with your support.

Donations made to CAF now through midnight tomorrow on the SVGives site will be matched up to $30,000 thanks to a generous group of Carlmont incoming and current families, as well as local businesses. Make your donation now and let’s meet the match!

Since a picture is worth a 1,000 words, the best way to explain how smaller class sizes are making a difference at Carlmont is by sharing the short video below (2.5 minutes), which features Carlmont students and teachers. Check it out – maybe there’s someone you know in the video.

We need your help now! Go Scots!

Ralph Crame
Principal, Carlmont High School

P.S. Please forward this email to your friends and family, and spread the word on your social media channels – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, or Snapshat – whatever you use!

“Thanks to CAF’s support of 13 additional class sections, academic classes have dropped in size by over 25% since the 2013-14 school year. The average size of an academic class in 2013-14 was 37-43. This year, the average class size in English I is 26 and 30 in Algebra I. Keep donating to CAF. It really makes a difference.”
