Wake Forest Elementary School is pleased to once again offer the opportunity for local businesses to partner with our school through the Cougar Pride Corporate Sponsorship Program. By partnering with WFE, businesses establish an effective relationship with our school community of children, families, teachers, and staff all while helping to provide the resources our students need so very much. Your contribution is considered a charitable organization under 501c3 Organization for a Federal Tax donation.
Something that not all of you are aware of is that Wake Forest Elementary has been deemed a TITLE I school, by the U.S. Department of Education. What does this mean? It means that we have more challenges at our school than others in our area! The basic principles of Title 1 state that schools with large concentrations of low-income students will receive supplemental funds to assist in meeting students' educational goals. Low-income students are determined by the number of students enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program. For an entire school to qualify for Title I funds, at least 41% of students must enroll in the free and reduced lunch program. At WFE, our program qualifies with 49% of our students being on the free or reduced lunch program. As well, have a larger than average need for early intervention programs too. Schools are continually asked to do more with less and it is left to our school PTA to help fill in the gaps! That is why we need YOU!
Wake Forest Elementary PTA funds a variety of programs and covers basic student needs such as: lunch money, enrichment programs, musical instruments, STEM programs, health and wellness education, playground equipment, field trips, classroom technology, books for the media center and classroom libraries, as well as FUN events like field day, Spring Fling, and Family Fun Nights and searching and not limited to all this and researching for grants for our teachers. ALL OF THIS WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE IF NOT FOR OUR CORPORATE SPONSORS. We need you to partner with our school and community. Even the smallest of businesses can be involved and we encourage you to look at each level of commitment that is right for your company. Your support is needed now more than ever. Should you have any questions or would like to communicate with a local representative please fill out the contact form below.
ON BEHALF OF OUR CHILDREN AT WAKE FOREST ELEMENTARY, WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR GENEROSITY AND SUPPORT!
THANK YOU FOR THE GIFT OF PARTNERING WITH OUR COMMUNITY!
