The Wiseburn Education Foundation (WEF) is seeking sponsorship for our annual fundraising event, Rock Around the Block, on March 24, 2018. Each Spring, the schools of Wiseburn USD come together to support our event and we expect attendance of over 1,200. This family fun day kicks off with a walk, followed by a showcase of student musical performances, and culminates with a family carnival that includes rides, games, entertainment, and food concessions. The event is expected to raise over $60,000. Proceeds from the event support the foundation’s funding priorities with primary focus on three areas:
Visual and Performing Arts Education: WEF believes access to and experience with art, drama and music is essential to a well-rounded education. Exposure stimulates and develops the imagination and promotes creative skills. Students strengthen problem-solving and critical-thinking, adding to overall academic achievement and student success.
Healthy Lifestyle Education: Teaching students how to treat their bodies with respect is essential to achieving lifelong health. WEF sponsors programs which promote healthy lifestyle choices. Educating students on the value of good eating habits and being physically active allows them to perform at their best, and helps develop self-confidence, self-discipline, and goal-setting.
Teaching Grants: WEF encourages teachers to engage in developing unique experiences and vibrant learning environments. Our teacher grant program provides funding to enhance student learning inside and outside the classroom. Grants are awarded for proposals that provide innovative classroom technology and equipment, curriculum enhancement, STEM activities, and multi-disciplinary projects.
We realize businesses have many opportunities throughout the year to make a difference for local non-profit organizations and WEF would be honored to receive your support. Donations from community businesses are critical to our success. And we want you to benefit as well as while building a stronger community together. Please refer to the list below for Rock Around the Block Sponsor benefits. Our goal for the 2017-2018 school year is to raise $200,000 in support of our students. Thank you for your consideration and support of our schools and community.
