Funding Priorities for 2018-19

The Willow Glen Education Foundation prides itself on helping our donors make the biggest impact at Willow Glen Middle School and Willow Glen High School. To make sure our donors’ contributions maximize student achievement, we’ve aligned our 2018-19 funding priorities with program improvement goals established by the schools themselves.

WG High School

For this school year, we intend to direct 75% of our total High School allocations in support of three key action areas identified by WGHS Staff during the successful 2017 WASC Accreditation process:

  • Provide support and opportunities to decrease the opportunity gap by raising the success rates for students of greatest needs.
  • Improve Math Skills for all students
  • Prepare students for post-graduate success through development of academic skills and learning abilities.

The remaining 25% of WGHS will fund other requests that fall within the Mission of the Foundation, but outside of the 2018-2019 Priorities.

WG Middle School

WGMS Staff have identified specific areas for technology enhancements and teacher training that the Foundation will support for 2018-19, including:

  • Project Lead the Way elective courses
  • Mathematics Curriculum Support and Teacher Training
  • Computer Upgrades and Software Licenses for classroom use

Please join us in support of these funding goals! We welcome volunteers in all areas and we invite our community to join us as donors and contributors to our positive school environment.

Help us give $125K to Willow Glen HS & MS

Thanks to our incredible community of volunteers and generous donors, the Willow Glen Foundation is ready to give more money to our local public schools! Our Board of Directors has set a goal of awarding $125,000 in grants and allocations in the 2018-19 school year, supporting science equipment, academic tools, teacher training, library books, classroom supplies, and student activities and experiences.

Of course, we’ll need your help to make sure we raise the money to fund this goal. Ways to help:

  • Renew your Foundation Membership for 2018-19, if you haven’t already.
  • Volunteer to help with one of our events or fundraising activities. Leave a comment below, and we’ll get back to you!
  • Join us at a Board Meeting to guide our responses to Principal’s allocation requests.
  • Plan to join us for our Annual Tasting & Auction on November 4, 2018.

Introducing our New Logo!

We’re very excited to share the Willow Glen Education Foundation’s new logo!

After the merger of the Foundation and the WGHS Parent Club, we wanted our new logo to emphasize the momentum that a great education provides for our students. Our new “play” button highlights our cutting-edge class offerings, including science and technology, while our colors reflect the history and tradition of our great neighborhood schools.

Please extend our special appreciation to volunteer and parent Michele Bertolone, who guided our logo development and design process, and donated all of her time and expertise free-of-charge to the Foundation. Thank you, Michele!
