WEF Grant Funding
Focus for 2022 - 2023 School Year
In recent years, donations have allowed us to fund a News Broadcasting studio,
Wellness Center and state-of-the-art Innovation Lab at Eisenhower. WEF has also contributed towards wellness initiatives at each of the 5 schools and have made additional contributions towards Makerspace development in each of the schools. Makerspace rooms provides hands-on, creative ways to encourage students to design, experiment, build and invent – all while engaging in science and engineering.
This school year, we will continue to work very closely Dr. Postma and each of the
WSD principles on new grant proposals summitted directly from the teachers.
2021 - 2022 :
Raising Funds for STEM & Robotics Initiatives
Last school year, WEF focused on raising funds to purchase items such as AR/VR devices (goggles, headsets, etc) for augmented and virtual reality. Currently, the district has just two AR/VR devices (provided by WEF in 2017).
On September 12, 2022, WEF donated $20,000 to the WSD for STEM & Robotics Initiatives! This wouldn't have been possible without the support from parents and sponsors...thank you so much!
News Broadcasting Studio
Allow for students to become working members of a news production team! They will plan, film, and edit a weekly news broadcast highlighting other students and events within the schools. This broadcast will be viewed by the entire student body. Students will also have opportunities to create podcasts.
Launching Fall 2021
WEF contributed $50,000 towards Makerspace development in each of the four elementary schools and a state-of-the-art Innovation Lab at Eisenhower Middle School. Makerspaces provides hands-on, creative ways to encourage students to design, experiment, build and invent – while engaging in science and engineering.
