In November 2011, TNF hosted a Gold Sales Event which earned Nicholson Elementary a profit of $1,617.  In January 2012, Bingo Night raised $1,100 toward the new gym floor.

Annually:  
  • TNF provides a full range of after school Enrichment Clubs
  • TNF donates hundreds of dollars in student scholarship funds for educational field trips
  • TNF provides funds for supporting technology, i.e. light bulbs for SMARTBoards and ELMOs, batteries, ink and toner  
  • TNF hosts Movie Night and Bingo Night on school grounds created to give back to the students and their families.  These events generate a small profit which is used for technological upgrades
  • TNF provides food and drink for its Bus Drivers at a reception Bus Driver Appreciation Day
As you can see, there are many technological areas in which The Nicholson Foundation provides educational equipment and software which have been and continue to serve the students of Nicholson Elementary.  Our goal is to assist our teachers in providing a state-of-the-art learning experience for each student.
