Wittmann School Education Foundation (WSEF)

 

Our Mission Statement

Wittmann School Education Foundation is a parent-run volunteer, non-profit organization that will utilize fundraising opportunities to provide educational support and insure academic success to the students of our Wittmann community.

 

Our Vision Statement

Once a child enters through the corridors of Wittmann Elementary School, he or she will be given the opportunity to obtain a firm educational foundation through the support of its faculty, their tools and their commitment.

 

We Need You

Donate - it’s an investment in your child’s education
Volunteer - your time and your talent are valuable
Serve – share your creative ideas and insight 
Represent - your child’s classroom/grade level

 

 

 

How does Wittmann School Education Foundation use these funds to support our school?

 

  • ELMOs document cameras and LCD projectors, invaluable classroom tools, have been purchased and installed in each Wittmann classroom.
  • Chromebooks were purchased to facilitate the technology component necessary to insure success on SBAC test. WSEF purchased two class sets of these tools, along with carts, to create mobile learning environments.
  • Math Olympiad Program is an after-school enrichment program which prepares students, grades 3-5, to compete in a national contest. The curriculum aligns with practices recommended in the new Common Core Standards.
  • Art 4 Kids Program is an educational experience focusing on California State Standards in Visual Arts. Students are offered classes three times a year. In addition, after-school classes will be offered, extending this valuable program.
  • Music Rotation allows each student to receive instruction in music theory and application on a weekly basis.
  • Birthday Book Club allows students to donate a book, of their choice, to our school library. A name plate is affixed to the book, recognizing the donor and their birthday, adding great new material to our library.

 

 

How does Wittmann School Education Foundation find support for our school?

 

  • Tasty Tuesdays local restaurants host our families and donate a percentage of the proceeds back to us.
  • Wittmann Wonderland is an annual event offering food and holiday entertainment provided by our very own Wittmann students.
  • Jump-a-thon is held every March. Each student receives donations for jumping rope for an hour. Individual, grade-level competitions add to the excitement of the event.
  • After-School Drink Sales allow families to purchase healthy treats and support the WSEF.
  • Open House Family Fun provides entertainment and food for families as they visit the Wittmann campus to tour classrooms.
