This year our holiday period is predicted to be a winter wonderland.  We will enjoy crisp days, snow on the trees, and warmth in our interactions.  This is a time of thanksgiving, gift giving, family and friend gatherings and joyful occasions.  Here at the DPS Foundation this is a time of reflection, as well as a time of anticipation.

We are appreciative of the many donors who provided the resources necessary for student field trips, the purchase of musical instruments, the creation of classroom libraries, upgrades in technology and much more.  We are grateful for the caring that has been expressed in so many ways.

As we look to the New Year, we know that we will be able to continue to achieve our mission of creating and enhancing educational opportunities for Detroit Public Schools students, because we have great partners. We trust that you also have a sense of optimism about the future and feel good about the role that you have played in creating this positive environment of growth.

Best wishes for a joyful holiday season.
