Windows of Opportunity

Windows of Opportunity is a fundraiser for Accelerated Schools and historic Fitzroy Place. This year’s proceeds are earmarked for the Preservation Fund of Fitzroy Place. Participants can Sponsor a “Windows of Opportunity” flower box for $200. (See Donor form or call for variations) These beautiful custom flower boxes may be taken home by the Donor, or displayed in the windows of Fitzroy Place. For those of you that choose boxes at the school, an engraved brass plate will be affixed to the flower box and will include: Donor’s name, a short quote (if desired) and the date of your Sponsorship. For those of you participating now, you get the bonus of having an appropriate created Fall window box, and when spring arrives, it will be replanted again with your designated choice of flowers, giving you a FULL “year” of Sponsorship! If you do not wish to sponsor a flower box, you can designate any amount and direct where you wish your donation to be used.

This project augments our science classes by giving students another “hands on” approach to learning in our school. 

When the project was thought up, a quote from “Lady Bird” Johnson’s, came to mind: “My criteria for the project are that it receive the fullest use, that it can be maintained easily, and that the desire emanate from the neighborhood and its people.” This was during her “Beautification” initiative while her husband was President. It seems like a great summation for this project!

We hope you will join us and be a part of this “Beautification” project of Fitzroy Place. Help us make a great and long lasting impression with flowers abound! Participate for our students, participate for our neighbors in University Park, and participate for Fitzroy Place!
