Fund-a-Need: Classroom Wish List Items in Action
As we are jumping into the new school year, our faculty members and students are excited to see various new additions to their classrooms and to campus. Last spring, Woodlawn raised just over $20,000 at the Green & White Gala specifically to be used for classroom wish list items. Throughout the year, faculty and administrators worked together to determine which specific items would improve the classroom experience for both students and teachers and designed a tiered list that would provide new and meaningful resources to our K-12 student body.
The wish list included items as small in size as an Apple TV for lower school to as large as a supplies shed for the Outdoor Student Leadership program. Middle school students now have access to an online grammar program called NoRedInk to enhance their study of language, and our yearbook team has an updated computer and hard drive to store the thousands of photos that they shoot throughout the year.
More so than just being new and updated features to our campus, these items actively help us execute on our mission. Whether the new whiteboard tables are allowing students to collaboratively work through problems, or the updated physics and chemistry equipment is letting our students put themselves in the shoes of a scientist, all of our wish list items serve as resources for our faculty to teach at the highest level and our students to engage with content and explore their passions.
We are extremely grateful for all of our volunteers that helped us make the Green & White Gala a success and for the various donors that gave generously to the Fund-a-Need: Classroom Wish List project. Thank you for your support of our students and faculty and for helping us make our mission possible.
