Windsor Collaborates for Education
On Monday, December 3rd, Windsor Education Foundation board members along with the Windsor High Key Club and National Honor Society gathered in the High School cafeteria to collate, label and wafer seal a 9,000 piece mailing of WEF's first annual appeal and newsletter. Thanks go out to all the energetic volunteers and to Konica Minolta Printing Services for generously donating the printing of the newsletter.
"WEF is a grass roots organization made up of a volunteer Board that has very few operating expenses. We don't have an office or staff, just dedicated volunteers who care about Windsor's students and future," says Paula Pierce, President of the Windsor Education Foundation.
The full color, four page newsletter illustrates the creative and innovative projects conducted by Windsor teachers and enjoyed by Windsor students that have been funded through grants from the Windsor Education Foundation over the past few years like Ekfrastic, Automotive Diagnosis and Tackling Bullying Through Art
The Windsor Education Foundation awards teachers grants of up to $1,500 and looks for a variety of proposals from all grade levels and schools that 1) Are consistent with the Windsor Board of Education goals, 2) Impact students with varying learning abilities, 3) Fall outside the regular operating budget, 4) Will ultimately impact/benefit a large number of individuals, 5) Encourage professional collaboration, and 6) Promote school and community communication.
