Santa Rosa French-American Charter School
Annual Family Giving
Chers parents and friends of SRFACS,
Bonne reprise et bonne rentrée à tous et à toutes et bienvenue à l’année scolaire 2014-15.
In anticipation of this school year, as every year, the SRFACS Foundation has dedicated itself to augmenting District funds. These extra dollars will help provide educational tools identified by teachers, administration and parents to achieve this year’s academic goals.
For only $1.37 per child/per day, each student will have access to a great education! This amounts to $500 per child this academic year. Please help us achieve this goal by generously donating to SRFACS Foundation. We encourage families and friends who can and wish to give more to do so, and we hope that everyone will participate by donating at the level that they can.
Every donation counts, and we count on you now!
Here are some examples of the investments we will make together this year to support our teachers and our children’s educational needs.
• $40,900 for teachers, classroom supplies, books and other resources
• $18,000 for French language books & in classroom libraries
• $6,500 for science kits
• $30,000 for computers, tablets and other technology
• $22,500 for art, music and recreation
Thank you in advance for your support of our 2014-15 fundraising campaign, which helps ensure that SRFACS continues as the wonderful school it is. You play a vital role in bringing an international approach to public education right here in Sonoma County.

Located in Northern California's wine region, one hour north of San Francisco, Santa Rosa French-American Charter School (SRFACS) is a dependent, public charter school, serving children from transitional kindergarten to eighth grade. We are fortunate to have the support, resources, and expertise of Santa Rosa City School District (SRCS) to help us establish a campus that will draw students from Sonoma, Napa, and Marin Counties in August 2012. In addition to exceeding expectations for a well-equipped elementary school, we will strive to create a cultural center for the benefit of our community.
SRFACS provides a rigorous and exciting education curriculum, with a global perspective. Our language immersion program draws children who love to be challenged and parents that are engaged and dedicated. This combination makes SRFACS students, parents and our community, engaged not only locally, but also globally.
Our rich curriculum with a unique and inspiring approach to education will provide students with opportunities to develop inner strength and potential that will serve them for the rest of their lives.

This video examines the value of a bilingual education, exploring why younger children have a superior ability to learn a second language. Considering research from Eric Lenneberg, Ellen Bialystok, among others, it also looks at why bilingual students are better speakers, better thinkers, better learners, have superior focus, score higher on tests, and are better citizens of the world.
SRFACS is a Santa Rosa City Schools establishment and affiliated with the following institutions.
