Making Willow Glen Middle &High the BEST they can be is my passion, for I truly believe theseschools offer the best start to life a child can get. It is gratifying thatso many of you share and support this conviction. Thank you!As you read through this report, I hope you’ll enjoy discovering themany wonderful initiatives the Foundation has supported this year.Two things stand out for me:Firstly, the Foundation has infused more money into the schoolsthis year than ever before - almost $90,000. This is a hugeaccomplishment and we have every right to feel proud.Secondly, our spending this year was guided by a specific desire -to enhance the schools’ “Climate, Culture and Classrooms.” Weaward funds to initiatives that help maintain a vibrant schoolcommunity, encourage respectful students and equip classroomsto optimize learning. From motivational assemblies to motivationalT-shirts; state-of-the-art science equipment to humble dailyplanners; visiting authors to visiting professionals… our schoolshave benefitted from our efforts.The Foundation Board and I look forward toworking with you next year.
