NOVA Middle School Annual Fund 2017-18 from NOVA School on Vimeo.


Active participation in our community is a core element of NOVA’s mission.  NOVA integrates the concept of engaged citizenship into our school operations, our interactions with our families and in what and how we teach our students. 

NOVA students volunteer, champion and raise funds for the causes they are passionate about. In just a four month period this year, students have been mentoring at Roosevelt Elementary, raising funds for charities such as Sidewalk Homeless Advocacy Center and Into the Woods Family Shelter, planning and participating in student council sponsored opportunities such as Adopt-A-Family, and growing fresh vegitables in the NOVA Garden for the Thurston County Food Bank.

The NOVA School Culture of Service and Giving continues to encourage, educate and provide opportunities for students and their families to be generous with their time, skills and financial resources.  Given the depth of need in our community, it is important that children learn not simply to pay it back, but to pay it forward – and support to the best of their abilities the causes and organizations about which they are passionate.  Nowhere is this lesson more evident than at NOVA, where nearly a third of our students receive financial aid.


There are multiple opportunities for you to be a role model by paying it forward and helping NOVA School continue to grow leaders, innovators, collaborators, and engaged citizens. The Annual Fund provides the opportunity for current students, Alumni and their families to invest in the near future of NOVA. Other opportunities include contributing to NOVA's signature Rising Star Scholarship, endowing a named Endowed Scholarship or earmarking funds for NOVA Campus facility needs ensure NOVA’s demographic reach, long-term relevance and ability to operate amazing programs are secured for future generations.
