Sturgeon Bay School District

A longtime educational partner of the Door County Century, our friends at the Sturgeon Bay School District receive money to fund special programs to enrich learning, group participation and teamwork. Programs include:

  • Destination Imagination (DI) – Part of a project-based learning program, DI blends STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education with the arts and social entrepreneurship.
  • Clipper Gridiron Club – Raising funds to support youth football programs in the Sturgeon Bay School District, the Gridiron Club has been able to purchase advanced equipment, in the hope of preventing injury.
  • High School and Middle School Student Councils – This group of student leaders work with an adult advisor to collaborate and impact their school community, through scholarship, leadership and values.
  • 8th Grade Special Programs – This year’s 8th Grade Washington D.C. trip is slated for mid-May 2020. Funds assist students to learn about the workings of our federal government while also taking in the splendor of the city.
  • High School Choir Programs – DCC funding contributes to an essential fine arts program, including transportation, apparel, and incidental costs.
  • Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) – PTO funding supports educational programs and teaching resources through active parental involvement.
