WGSD Foundation

Do you love WGSD AND enjoy social media?

To continue our growth, the WGSD Foundation is seeking a volunteer Communication Specialist. Time commitment would be only 1-2 hours a week.

The WGSD Foundation’s mission is to drive innovative and dynamic learning opportunities that impact student success. We fund teacher-designed grants that specifically focus on novel, “new to WGSD” educational ideas anticipated to have powerful impact on students. We have much to share with the WG community, including highlighting the teachers and grant ideas funded, the impact of our work on kids AND the promotion of our events and fundraisers.  

The Foundation is excited to work with someone who enjoys the world of social media and wants to get more involved supporting our schools. This person would ideally be someone who enjoys using Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and any other social media platforms.  Time commitment is approximately 1-2 hours per week.

IF THIS IS YOU, please email Becky Hauser at info@wgsdfoundation.org.

Or, PLEASE SHARE this information with your friends who love to post creative updates on social media (and who love to celebrate great things happening in the WGSD!)

Playground Update

In order to ensure input from every student at Hudson, our playground partner  Unlimited Play has scheduled a visit to our school during the morning of January 22. Representatives will meet with groups of students to talk about inclusive playgrounds and the impact they can have on the surrounding community. A short survey will follow to gather feedback from each student, with the goal of making sure that the playground design is tailored and responsive to the needs of the Hudson community.

Silent Auction Solicitation Committee

The 2019 Trivia Night and Silent Auction Committee is looking for a few more members to help visit 5 local businesses to help us get items for the silent auction at the 2019 Trivia Night. We have an info packet and a list of place we still need visited to make it as easy as possible. If you are willing to volunteer, please e-mail RebeccaDohrman@gmail.com for more information. 

 

Silent Auction Donations Needed: The 2019 Trivia Night and Silent Auction is looking for Hudson parents who may be able to donate items or services for the silent auction items! We are open to any item you may be able to donate...here are some ideas:

  • sports tickets
  • access to a weekend stay at a vacation sport
  • Products or services of some kind

Think about family members or close friends who may have items or services they would be willing to offer as part of a silent auction basket!

 

We are also looking for people to host a sign-up party that others might be interested in coming to at a predetermined date of your choosing. Partner up with another family or two and think up something fun! If you are willing to donate something, please e-mail RebeccaDohrman@gmail.com for more information.
