The West High School Foundation (WHSF)
Dear West High School parents and friends,
Your West High School Foundation (WHSF) has been hard at work since the start of school. We kicked off our West 365 campaign, which has been very promising thus far. The basic theme of our campaign looks at how we value an education at West High School. Is it worth $1 a day? We have also received several grant requests from teachers and we are working desperately to fulfill these. This is how the Foundation is designed to work.
We are so fortunate at West to have the diversity of students and a talented and dedicated faculty and staff. Each year students from many different walks of life enter the doors of West and are guided to reach their highest potential. This is quite a job particularly when the funding from the county is limited. Your Foundation strives to bridge that gap between what the school system provides and what our faculty sees as necessary improvements to allow our children to learn in an improved environment.
Last year we raised over $100,000 with a portion of that going to the completion of our outstanding new lecture hall. We would like to match that goal this year. Your gift to the WHSF provides professional development for our teachers, computer technology support, facility enhancements as needed, and teacher recognition awards at the end of each school year.
It is our hope at the Foundation that you will take a look at what we can do for your child and the West High School community, and I hope you will consider a gift. We accept personal checks or you may donate online. If you have any questions about the Foundation, please contact me via email at WHSfoundation@knoxschools.org or via the school office at 594-4477.
As always, I would like to thank those that have already sent in their gift or made a pledge. We could not do our work without you.
