A message of thanks from one of our recent events

Hello Dan,

It was a pleasure meeting you a few weeks ago at our WPS Family Academy on August 23rd. We were so grateful to the 200 Foundation for the donation of 250 backpacks- all of which were distributed to families at the Parent Academy!

The Parent Academy was organized by the Office of Family & Community Engagement and was an event targeted to families who recently immigrated to the United States. The event was focused on four different communities- families from Haiti, Latin America, Afghanistan, and Brazil- and workshops were facilitated in four different languages to educate families about the WPS and help ensure families and students are ready for the new school year. Families were so excited to receive backpacks that day and children loved picking out their own colors!

Again, thank you so much to the 200 Foundation for supporting our families! Below please find a picture from the distribution.
