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.

Just a reminder to families to please log summer reading online in Wandoo Reader by Sept 14th. If you don't remember all the books read, typing in a few is helpful for the numbers that we must report to the state. Usernames and passwords are the student's first name and then last initial. There may also be a 1 at the end. If this doesn't work, you can sign up for a new account and type in some books read over the summer.
Please see the letter for curriculum night details and schedule. We are looking forward to seeing families on this important night.
Please enjoy the International Night Video created by our own Dan Zipadelli.
