• Orono Schools #DreamBig
    Starting 2000, in an environment of decreased state-funding, Orono parents and community members have continued to step up year after year and provide additional funding to the schools, constantly striving for excellence rather than state-funded adequacy. The funds raised by the Foundation are granted to the schools and go towards things like: keeping class sizes small, having additional coursework and classroom technology that may not be offered in a school of similar size, ongoing teacher training, and additional teaching specialists.

    Thanks for continuing to help The Orono Foundation for Education meet Today’s Needs and Tomorrow’s Dreams!
