As many of you have heard through the news media, from our Serra website and also through word of mouth, Serra High School has been closed through March 25, as we all take the necessary precautions to reduce the spread of the COVID-19, Coronavirus.
We also had to make the difficult decision to not gather as a community for our annual Fund a Dream event, which was scheduled to take place on Saturday, March 14.
Fund a Dream is more than a social event, it is a fundraiser dedicated solely to tuition assistance for Padres who would like to attend Serra but do not have the money to do so. Over the course of 15 years, the Serra community has raised $5 million in this effort.
We recognize that this is an uncertain time with our current health crisis and the impact that it is having on the broader economy. This challenging situation only underscores our need to continue to provide this opportunity for future and current Padres.
We believe the need is now more than ever. We need to support the young men who aspire to be formed in a community of faith who will go forward to make a difference in the world - Now more than ever.
In that spirit, we move forward. We have created a virtual Fund a Dream for us to gather in support of Padres who aspire to a Serra education. We are asking our supporters to visit our site and spend some time there. This is our way of continuing to tell the story of the transformative impact of a Serra education and be a part of that story moving forward.
We are deeply grateful for your support - Now more than ever!
