West Essex Foundation for Education
Celebrating a Successful Fourth Year!
West Essex Foundation for Education 2015-2016
A Special Letter from WEFE President Cari Moscowitz
WHAT IS WEFE?
I am asked that question all the time. Basically, WEFE (The West Essex Foundation for Education) is a parent-driven organization, which was formed to enhance the quality of education in the West Essex Regional School District. We raise funds throughout the year. The teachers submit grant applications and we do our best to fulfill their wishes.
We strive to provide our teachers with the tools needed to make their classrooms the most technologically advanced learning environments possible.
But we can’t do it alone...
Many of our original members youngest children have graduated and more will graduate this year. We are hoping to get a new generation of parents involved.
A small amount of your time can go a very long way. I thank you in advance for your support.
To date, $50,000 has been raised and donated directly to our classrooms! As I write this, I reflect back on our beginnings just four years ago. WEFE held its first meeting in October 2008 when a group of enthusiastic supporters of West Essex Regional School District gathered together and this Foundation was born. Our mission remains the same today; to enhance the quality of education in The West Essex School District by providing financial support for innovative programs that enrich student achievement and promote excellence in education.
WEFE holds several fundraising events each year including the “Trotting for Technology “ 5K Run/Walk. Whatever your interests, there is an event for everyone to show their support for our school.
Thanks to all of our supporters for your participation in WEFE’s events, the financial contributions made, and the endless hours of volunteering that have made our mission a success.
WEFE’s contributions have made West Essex a better place for our students, our teachers and our community. I look forward to another successful year.
