Fund Story

Recognizing that money is a barrier for some students who’d love to participate in special activities, Mary Kay, Peter, Miranda and Olivia Steele opened the Teen Dream Fund in 2015. The fund will help students join in positive creative outlets, such as orchestra, marching band, and winter guard as well as extracurricular sports (such as YMCA), school clubs and activities like class trips.
