District News 

The Foundation for West Hartford Public Schools wants to fund your imaginative ideas!
Posted 08/29/2017 03:35PM

The Foundation's mission is to provide financial support for educational projects, programs, and initiatives that will enhance and enliven the classroom experience and promote excellence in West Hartford Public Schools.

The Foundation raises funds from individuals, businesses, and civic groups in the community as well as alumni nationwide. Gifts of $1,000 or more entitle the donor to honor an individual, business or civic group by having the Foundation name a grant. Once a year, certified teachers throughout the school district are invited to apply for grants ranging from $200 to $3,000 for a project that will enhance student experience, complement the curriculum and demonstrate educational merit. A Foundation committee reviews the applications with the teacher's name and school removed. After approval by the Foundation board, awards are presented in late spring of each year.

For more information or to apply for a grant, visit The Foundation's webpage HERE.

Goldbeck Family Grant: Red, Clear to Brown... What's on the Ground? or in the Bucket? Randi Leopold, Lead Teacher & Martina Cravedi (Smith), Elizabeth Cannone (Charter Oak), Nichola Dustin (Charter Oak), Cindy Barron (Charter Oak)

The Red, Clear and Brown grant will take a large number of pre-kindergarten children to the 4-H Auer farm twice during the school year. 112 Pre-K children at Webster Hill, Smith, and Charter Oak Elementary Schools will travel once in the fall and once in the spring. The fall “Apples & Apple Trees” will show students the fall time in the environmental cycle and what happens to trees and leaves. In the spring the “Maple Sugaring” trip to the farm will give students hands-on learning of the sugaring process.
