School District Foundation Update
It has been a busy school year for the WGSD Foundation. The Foundation recently awarded over $32,700 of Mini, Major and Alumni grants to so many inspirational teachers in and around our district. Examples of some of the grants that have been awarded include an “Outdoor Stage” at Hudson Elementary, “The Living Portfolio” for all elementary art teachers, “STEM-Spiration” at Hixson Middle School, “Sound Domes” at Bristol Elementary, “VR Robots” at the High School, and many more.To read more about recently awarded grants, visit the Foundation website News Blog at http://www.wgsdfoundation.org/news.
The Board of Directors of the Webster Groves School District Foundation would like to express a heartfelt “thank you'” to all those that attended our annual Ivory Crockett Run for Webster in October. This was another example of the great community we have here in Webster Groves.

On November 2nd, 2018 we hosted our annual Sip + Savor Event. This year our special guest was Dr. Henry Givens Jr. It was an honor to recognize such a distinguished guest who has made such a positive impact on education here in St. Louis and to hear his inspiring words. This wonderful night, hosted at Algonquin Golf Club, also showcased the WGHS Robotics Team that we have supported for many years, the WGHS Jazz Band and Orchestra students and the WGHS STEP Team. Over $42,000 was raised during this event.
A big “thank you” goes out to the generous donors and attendees who attended Mardi Gras @ Cyrano’s March 3. We are so thankful for the support of Cyrano’s Café for hosting our event.
We hope to see you on Sunday May 5 for Webster on Wheels, a fun family bike ramble and picnic. For more information about events or to make a donation, visit www.wgsdfoundation.org
