List of Funds

GRACE BERGER MEMORIAL FUND
Grace Berger shared her love of learning with her students, her colleagues, and her friends.  Throughout her life she exemplified what it means to be a good teacher and a good student.  She was curious about the world genuinely interested in the welfare of others.

As a child living in Superior, Grace Berger attended Bryant Elementary School.  It was here that Miss Agnes Bury, principal of Bryant School, touched her life and made a lasting impression.
 
Grace Burger has honored Agnes Bury’s memory through the establishment of a memorial fund dedicated to the purchase of library media for the Bryant School.  It is fitting that the lives of both teacher and student will have a continuing positive influence on the learning experiences of all children at Bryant School.
 
The students of Bryant School and the School District of Superior are grateful to Grace Berger for her thoughtfulness, her generosity, and her love of learning.

JEFFERSON FUND
The Jefferson Fund honors our third President, Thomas Jefferson; diplomat, traveler, author of the Declaration of Independence, founder of the University of Virginia, inventor, scholar, author, student of politics and the law, keen observer of the natural world and a passionate explorer of his place and time.  The purpose of this fund will be to assist young men and women to pursue these Jeffersonian virtues.

Purpose:  Moneys contributed to the Jefferson Fund will be used to fund grants:

  • To supplement specific needs of Superior High School’s Mock Trial and Harvard Model United Nations programs as identified by the program’s advisor

  • To assist students with special or unusual costs necessary for participation in either program

  • To provide financial assistance for members of either organization to attend summer workshops or camps which specifically develop Mock Trial or Model U.N. skills; and, in addition

  • To supplement foreign travel costs for students to Third-World countries from funds specifically given for such purposes.

SUSAN MARKEE AUTISM FUND
Susan Markee’s family has set up a fund at Cooper School for autistic children to attend summer camp.  Sue first worked as a paraprofessional with handicapped students.  She was very comfortable working in this area as their second child was born with cerebral palsy.  Eventually she moved into the area of autistic children and found this work challenging, yet rewarding.  Sue retired from the School District of Superior in January 2012.  She passed away in August 2012.

Sponsored by current and retired employees of the School District of Superior, this fund is designed to help support the post-secondary educational goals of graduating Superior students.  The criteria includes a grade point average of 2.5 to 3.499 and 20 or more volunteer hours in our community.

STUDENT ACTIVITIES FUND

The School District of Superior sets high expectations for all staff and students.  We believe that all children must have the tools to live, learn and work successfully.  In addition, we believe it is essential to provide our students with a variety of educational experiences.

The Superior Student Activity Fund has played a vital role in providing these experiences.  As money for education has become tighter and district needs have changed, our challenges as a community have also changed.  When students are exposed to new and exciting educational experiences, they often find their interest sparked.  Interest leads to more learning and career choices.
 
The Superior Student Activities Fund enhances learning opportunities for students of all grades.  The Fund has supported individual students’ costs in higher education coursework, classrooms take meaningful field trips, and schools attain educational programs.  Advisors and teachers can apply for funding for various activities not covered by the School District’s budget.  

Deadlines for submitting Student Activities Fund applications are September 15 and/or December 15.  Any application not received by the Superintendent's Office by December 15 will not be considered.  If this request is for a classroom activity, a School District of Superior Field Trip Request Form must be attached.
