We Appreciate You!
As the end of the year approaches, we are looking back with gratitude to all who help make a Cornerstone education possible for more than 3,500 students at our five schools. From Partners to parents, teachers to custodians, Cornerstone’s work is possible only because our community comes together to support our students.
When you consider your end-of-year giving, please keep Cornerstone in mind. State funding goes only so far, and we want to continue to offer our students the latest technology, curricula, and programs to help them succeed. Thank you for your continued support of Cornerstone students.
