Ask the Legislature to Increase Nonpublic School Accounts in FY 2022 Budget

Governor Murphy announced his proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2022 on February 23, 2021. 

The Budget process is now in the hands of the Legislature. We are asking the Legislature for increases in the per-pupil amounts for the nonpublic transportation ceiling and the Nonpublic School Technology Initiative.

 Specifically, we are asking for the nonpublic school transportation ceiling to be raised to $1,150.00 and for the per-pupil amount for nonpublic school technology to be increased to $45.00.

Dear SRLA Students,

This Friday 5/21 is the 2021 SRLA Walk-A-Thon! You still have time to rack up last-minute pledges! Prizes will be awarded to the class/students that raise the most money. Currently the 1st grade leads the school in donations.

As a reminder, please remember to bring your new Walk-A-Thon T-Shirt home on Thursday and wear it to school on Friday along with your gym shorts and sneakers! That's right, Ravens, enjoy a free dress down day and sport your new t-shirt. 

Virtual students please have someone pick your shirt up at SRLA on Thursday so that you have it to wear for the Walk-a-Thon. On Friday you can either show up at school and walk with your class, or stay virtual and walk from home and share your pictures and videos!

Thank you all for your participation, cooperation and school spirit!!!

GO RAVENS

Hello Parents,

The HSA is already gearing up for this year’s Wish Upon A Star gala, happening on June 13! One of the most important parts of WISH—the Sponsorship campaign—happens well before the evening itself, and we’re asking SRLA families for your help!

WISH Sponsors generously donate cash funds that go directly toward offsetting the Academy’s operating budget. Our Sponsors include car dealerships, dry cleaners, contractors, restaurants, realtors, dentists and doctors, dance and gymnastics studios, auto repair shops, and financial advisors. We’re lucky to count so many businesses, large and small, among our loyal supporters, but we’re always looking for ways to reach new donors.

If you have any personal connections to businesses that might be interested in donating to SRLA, please let us know! It could be your business or employer, a store or eatery where your family is a loyal customer, or a provider of services to your home or office. WISH is also a great opportunity to take advantage of matching gift programs that many companies offer when employees make eligible donations. To ensure the donation is listed in our bid book we are asking for submissions by June 1st.

For more information on WISH Sponsorships, please contact Allison Smith, Sponsorship Chair, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Thank you all in advance for helping us make this year’s WISH a success!
