What does the money go towards?  Teacher Grants!!!

From Jeannette Kaplan, 4th grade teacher at WES:    (Read more here)

In 2012, you funded the All Are Authors/All Our Authors, a grant that allowed my class with their first grade partner readers in Jenn Hole’s class to publish their own mystery book, The Undersea Mystery.  We took weekly field trips to Helen Kate Furness Library to study mysteries and selected Graeme Base as our mentor author.  He inspired us to illustrate and write our own mystery, full of rhyme, hidden codes, and suspense.  We then shared this book at a large community celebration.  The project promoted the use of the local library and prompted students who did not already have a library card to get one.







Finally, most recently in 2016, the Foundation helped launch the Mural Arts Club, an after school art club that engaged a core group of fifth graders to go through a mural design project with local artist Mary Ellis Noel Hall.  Their final design was used in the Artist Residency program where the entire school population painted their design onto giant mural canvases which were then affixed to a prominent corner in WES’s hallway.  The fifth graders culminated their study of murals with a Mural Arts Program trolley tour of local Philadelphia murals.
