Some, perhaps, will enter lives of service in the military, in religion, or in the government.

Middle: New furniture in the Lower School was paid for through the Annual Fund. It was carefully chosen to enhance Liggettâ€™s Curriculum for Understanding by easily creating work areas for collaboration. Bottom: A lot was done over the summer of 2012, and through the dedication of the staff and faculty, all was ready when students showed up for the first day of classes.
Top: Before the 2012-13 school year started, University Liggett School faculty attended a seminar run by Dr. Gary Gruber of the Santa Fe Leadership Center, which works to develop a community of leaders in educational institutions across the country. Annual Fund dollars make faculty development possible.

Middle: The former Ford Gym is now the Middle School Commons, a place that quickly became the heart of the new Middle School on the Cook Road Campus. Students and faculty begin each morning with a meeting there, often with a song. Bottom: All sixth-graders received an iPad for their school work. The technology was made possible by donations to the Annual Fund and teachers were trained on how to incorporate them into their teaching.
Top: On the second day of school, longtime students told new and returning students alike that they are part of a great family that cares for one another and wants them to succeed.

Middle: Two friends of Liggett who attended the kickoff were Jim Perry, ’70 GPUS and Betsy Maitland, ’52 CDS. She was his third grade teacher here. Bottom: Fielding nearly 30 sports teams is an expensive proposition, but Liggett knows that many lessons are learned on the field as well as in the classroom. Annual Fund dollars help keep our athletes playing the games they love.
Top: The Annual Fund Kickoff in September brought together friends of Liggett from many different groups including parents, alumni, faculty and former faculty. They heard Associate Head of School for Advancement Kelley Hamilton talk about the importance of donating to the Annual Fund, as tuition covers only about 80 percent of the true cost of a Liggett education.

Parent Participation It can be daunting to think that tuition dollars do not cover all of the cost of a Liggett education, which is why we have an Annual Fund. Just a few years ago, only about 50% of parents contributed; last year, more than 80% of parents in all divisions gave to make this year’s fundraising the most successful ever. Our parents appreciate the value of a Liggett education and the efforts we take to keep it affordable. Thank you, parents, for taking this to heart and giving so generously.

Faculty/Staff 100 Percent Participation Charitable organizations consider many things when deciding whether to donate to school programs. One of the most important indicators of the school’s vitality is the percentage of giving by the people who are perhaps most invested in the organization such as parents, alumni, staff and faculty. For three years in a row now, every member of our faculty and staff has donated to the Annual Fund. Their unified support is a bold statement of commitment and dedication to our school and its most precious resource, our students.

Middle: Interaction among students from different divisions is one of the great bonuses of having the entire school on one campus. The Senior-First Grade Buddy program has long been a favorite of seniors and first-graders, especially at Halloween, when the first-graders coordinate their costumes with their senior buddy. Bottom: The classroom does not end at the walls. During last year’s election cycle, our youngest students voted on something of great importance to them: What would their snack be that day. Goldfish crackers edged out popcorn.
Top: Our Alumni Athletic Hall of Fame, in its second year in 2012-13, inducted six former student athletes and one legendary former faculty member – Muriel Brock – for their contributions to athletics at Liggett and beyond.

Middle: Middle School social studies classes go on an archaeological dig every fall, showing them that history is all around us, even mere inches under the soil at our feet. Bottom: Fourth-grade students used Flipcams and a lot of ingenuity and creativity to create movies from books they read.
Top: The quality of our performing arts is nationally known and recognized. The fact that most of the work, from the set, sound and lighting design to the costuming, choreography and promotion, is all done by the students makes it even more special.

Grandparent Giving Grandparents of Liggett students do more than simply show up for special occasions like concerts or games or commencement. They are a welcome and vital part of the Liggett family, some even volunteering in the classrooms. Many of them provide substantial support to the Annual Fund, ensuing their grandchildren attending University Liggett School have access to the best opportunities the school can provide.

The Sponsorship Society Members of the Sponsorship Society provide support to the Annual Fund, an annual campaign that strengthens and enhances the extraordinary opportunities of a University Liggett School education, ensures the quality of our programs and supports initiatives designed to engage the entire community.
Our Sponsors are featured in all school
publications, the school website and Liggettâ€™s athletic facilities - on the ice, on a dasher board or a banner at the Francis J. McCann Ice Arena, and on our baseball field. We wish to thank our 2012-13 Sponsors for their generous support last season. Members of the Sponsorship Society: All State Fastener Corporation
With a corporate sponsorship, businesses align themselves with the school for a modest donation. Their money helps pay for improvements to keep our sports teams going.

Our boys hockey team was tops in its division.
Liggett Knight, our annual fall fundraiser, set a record this year, raising just about $195,000. The event, held at the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club, featured more than 300 items from student-made and other original artwork to trips, jewelry and one-ofa-kind events in three different types of auction – fishbowl, silent and live. Many people took advantage of the school’s online bidding app that allowed anyone with Internet access to bid on silent auction items from wherever they were.
Proceeds from the event
provide unrestricted operational funds that support curricular and extracurricular programs for more than 600 students in grades PreK through 12. Event Chairs: Louana Ghafari & Ginny Simon
Middle: Those who attended had great fun with our new bidding technology, which allowed even people who couldn’t attend the sold-out event to be in the race for all sorts of items by bidding with their Smartphones. Bottom: Young alumni, parents, faculty and staff came together at the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club for the event which raised nearly $195,000 for the school and its programming.
Top: In November, Liggett Knight, our annual fundraiser, brought hundreds of people together to raise money for the school through silent, live and fishbowl auctions. Liggett parent Huong Reilly painted the picture of the Briarcliff Campus that brought in more than $20,000 at the auction. It hangs in the new Middle School.

Alumni Participation Alumni have many reasons they donate to the Annual Fund. Some attended the school on scholarship and want to ensure future generations of students can have that same opportunity. Others are grateful for the education they received here and still use every day. Others want the school to remain the vibrant place they remember. Alumni participation in the Annual Fund has skyrocketed in the last few years. Five years ago, only 7% of our alumni donated to the school. In the 2012-13 fiscal year, 17% donated. We hope this is also an indicator our outreach and alumni programming are well received and helping our alumni reconnect with their alma mater.

Top: Every year the Upper School English Department brings in a working author to speak with the students and conduct an evening book club event for parents. Learning that even successful writers sometimes struggle with writing is an invaluable lesson.
Bottom: Sometimes the best teacher is another student. Our Upper School students helped PreK students understand germs – showing they know enough about the subject to teach the youngsters about it. And the little students learned in a way that was meaningful to them.
Middle: Technology is used in every discipline almost every day. But at Liggett, we teach students how to analyze the information they find that is so readily available – and often incorrect or biased – on the Internet.
