Do you value having full time nurses, music, art, Dance,and teacher aides in your childs school? All those are made possible by The Ed Foundation, so let’s step it up and show our support by donating TODAY to the Santa Monica Ed Foundation, the fundraising entity for our school district that funds critical programs and staff at Will Rogers. Go to www.smedfoundation.org/donate and give whatever amount you can. There’s no better time to give – the WRLC PTA just announced that it will match all WRLC families’ donations to the Ed Foundation, dollar for dollar, up to $10,000! AND, if we reach 70% family participation at Rogers, our students will get a double recess (date TBD), with the grade level that has the highest participation getting cookies during the double recess!
This February, the Board of Education will decide which of these programs will be funded for the 2019-20 school year, so please get your donations in by January 31! THANK YOU!
The Ed Foundation would love your help with their phone-a-thon, taking place on Thursday, January 24 AND on Wednesday, January 30! You can come by the Ed Foundation office (1645 16th Street) anytime on either day between 9:30am and 7:30pm. You can also get a group of friends together to make calls and make a night out of it! Please sign up here to make calls. Once you sign up, Rachel Faulkner from the Ed Foundation will reach out to you with more details. Food/light snacks will be provided at the Ed Foundation office if you are making calls there.
