We've tallied up the volunteer hours and the money raised through the generous support of our amazing school community. Last school year saw parents and family donating over 1,000 hours of their time to help the students of our school. We also raised over $200K (wow!) through our many fundraisers that will be used to support student enrichment efforts this coming school year.
A huge thank you to the entire community – parents, family, businesses, neighbors, students, teachers and staff – for your generosity and your willingness to help in every way possible.
Volunteering at Waters
The 1,000 volunteer hours are just the ones we could count and don't include the countless hours volunteers have spent making copies for teachers, helping in the classroom, supervising field trips, planning events, helping the Ecology Program, or serving on the Local School Council (LSC), Bi-Lingual Advisory Committee (BAC) or the WatersToday Board.
Without volunteers, we couldn't pull off many well-loved events and activities, including (but definitely not limited to) Harvest Day, Scholastic Book Fairs, the Holiday Craft Market, Visual Arts and Technology Shows, Pi Night, Wildcat Walk-a-Thon, Field Day and many more.
If you'd like to get involved this coming school year, we'll find a place for you! Contact the WatersToday Volunteer Team.
Funding Great Programs for Waters' Students
The $200K + we raised will support the extras that make Waters school great. Your generosity supports the upcoming school year programs: 100% of the Waters Ecology Program, 50% of the Music program, and recess and lunch supervision so that our teachers have more time for their lesson preparation. And it doesn't stop there. The funds raised this past year will also support this year's coach stipends and sports equipment, and some pretty cool supplies for the arts, technology and science programs. Find out more.
