Friends of Whiting School (FOWS) would like to welcome you all to an exciting new 2016-2017 school year. Friends of Whiting School is a vital component of our school community. The organization works to enhance our students’ educational experience by sponsoring enrichment programs and social events, along with support for our classrooms through the purchase of select supplies and equipment.
FOWS 2016-2017 Fundraisers
FOWS organizes fundraisers throughout the school year to fund activities and items that benefit our students and enhance the learning experience. Some examples of items and programs that have been supported by FOWS are the school playground, BrightLink projector for the K-1 classroom, teacher appreciation week, field trips, 6th grade yearbooks, children’s fair and student movie night. WE NEED YOUR HELP to continue to raise money for the activities and items that enhance the learning experience for our students, but are not in the school budget.
Your participation is the key to our success. We invite you to get involved and be an important part of this educational experience. FOWS meets once a month on the first Wednesday of the month at 7pm. At these meetings we brainstorm fundraising ideas, discuss how funds will be utilized, and organize and plan fundraising activities. We need members who are willing to attend monthly meetings, members who can help with implementing our fundraisers, and those who are experienced in grant research and writing. We welcome your participation in any way you are able, whether it be attending meetings or offering a helping hand with any of our activities and fundraisers. We thank you all for helping out Friends of Whiting School in any way you can and making a difference.
Please consider attending our next meeting to see what we do and how you can help! Our meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month @ 7:00 pm.
