South Plainfield High School has a rich tradition of excellence in education. Many of its former students are hard-working employees in our community. Numbered among SPHS graduates are bankers, doctors, nurses, engineers, business owners, lawyers, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, professional athletes, entertainers, and writers.
In order to continue this tradition of excellence, the South Plainfield Education Foundation is now reaching out to the business community for its financial support.
Incentive programs that foster scholastic and civic responsibility need to be funded. Scholarships that provide for post-secondary education need to be instituted.
The Gold Card program is an incentive program to encourage students to reach their fullest academic potential. Project Graduation is a drug and alcohol free all-night party for our graduating seniors. This program, supervised by High School staff and parents, provides food, games, and entertainment for our students. Also, Tiger Gold, a program that encourages good citizenship, is in place in our Middle School.
Scholarship money is also very limited. At no other time in history has the need for an educated work force been greater, and yet the rising costs of college and trade schools have made them unavailable to many qualified students.
In an era of global competitiveness, our responsibility to our students to prepare them for the technological jobs of the future is greater than ever before.
If we are to emerge, once again, as an economic leader, we need to take the initiative, invest in our human resources, and model civic responsibility.
IF SOUTH PLAINFIELD IS TO CONTINUE ITS RICH TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE,
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!!
