Your Support in Action
The Christmas House Tour is the biggest fundraiser for the St. Albans Parents’ Association and traditionally supports initiatives such as the faculty grants program, faculty and staff appreciation programs, faculty bonuses, and a student visual arts fellowship program. Faculty grants have provided equipment, technology, faculty professional development, and unique demonstrations and lessons that have enhanced the learning experience and enriched the athletic, arts, and extracurricular opportunities for all students. Laptops and tablets for the Language Department, the theater’s wireless microphone system and LED lighting, athletic program training equipment, and the fabulous blacksmith workshop are only a few examples of the classroom and campus enhancements made possible by the generosity of the Christmas House Tour sponsors and participants.
Last spring, in lieu of the faculty grants program, the Parents’ Association contributed financial support to a “Resiliency Fund” to help St. Albans provide effective distance learning, support a variety of faculty needs, and otherwise address those unexpected costs associated with the ongoing pandemic. The Parents’ Association was both humbled and honored to assist in this way, and it was gratifying to witness the amazing enhancement of the distance-learning experience with the addition of DTEN interactive monitors.
So we give special thanks to everyone for their support of the Christmas House Tour. We are appreciative that our St. Albans community always rises to the cause of our faculty, our staff, and especially our boys.
