Jack L. Weaver Elementary - Friends of Weaver Donations
Thank you for donating to Friends of Weaver!
Friends of Weaver is a non-profit organization dedicated to acquiring, maintaining, improving, and updating STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Music) resources at Weaver. Through a variety of fundraising efforts, FOW provides support and resources to Weaver students and staff so a variety of STEAM learning opportunities may be utilized to ensure all students are successful.
Funds raised directly benefit your child through FOW’s provision of the following:
- FOW is raising money to replace 38 outdated desktops that are over 10 years old with 40 brand-new laptops that will allow our kids to work with the latest technology.
- FOW is funding "Project Lead The Way" (PLTW) at Weaver
o As the first and only elementary school implementing this program in the district, Weaver is forging ahead as the trail blazer to introduce this curriculum to our students.
o The goals of PLTW are to launch critical thinking, integrate technology into the classroom, encourage teachers and students to learn together, teach students to use the design process: Ask, Explore, Model, Evaluate, Explain.
o The money FOW raises has funded, and will continue to fund, the credentialed teacher, curriculum, training and instruction materials in the Media Center.
- During the past five years, FOW has purchased over 650 technology devices for Weaver students and staff.
Each computer costs $1,500 and we appreciate donations in ANY amount.
It's not easy to provide a quality education and taxpayer dollars do not fund all of the school's needs. This is where Friends of Weaver and YOU make the most difference at Weaver Elementary.
