The Benefit—Because of a Teacher was a huge success! Over 300 members from the NSCDS community gathered on Friday, February 22 at Michigan Shores Club in Wilmette, raising more than $400,000 for faculty. Investing in our teachers is the single most significant way we can ensure that they, the School and its students are growing, thriving and adapting for the future.
Over the years, North Shore’s annual benefit has raised more than $5 million to fund areas not fully covered by the operating budget, such as curriculum and teaching fund grants, student scholarships and faculty enrichment grants. It has also helped fund major capital projects including the renovation of the Lower School, construction of the Conant Science Center and renovation of the Auditorium and Arts Center.
