ABOUT THE FOWC TEAM
Fortunately, our school community is amazing but there is a small team that keeps it all organized.
We are proud to introduce you to our amazing parent group that does everything and anything to support our school.
Friends of Williams-Cone is a parent volunteer group which organizes events that support our students and staff. Our mission each year is to strive to offer fun, educational events that allow us to help raise money for the needs within our school. Over many years we have established an amazing community where parents, staff, and teachers have come together to provide a safe, fun, successful school for our children.
Friends of Williams-Cone tries to raise approximately $10,000 each year to help offset costs or fulfill needs. Below we will give you a breakdown of what is taken out each year and how each student is touched by your contributions :
Events/Contribution to School Counselor (Boo-hoo Breakfast, Ice Cream Social, Family Support): $800.00
Teacher Appreciation Week: $200.00
Teacher Wishlists (classroom needs-snacks, markers,pens,books,nurses station,tissues): $1500.00
Field Trip Costs: $3,000.00- keeps parents responsibility low
5th grade contribution(yearbooks, end of year trip): $1,000.00
Some extras: after school club stipends, staff support to enhance the curriculum, outside play toys
Every penny we raise goes right back into our school.
The parents are what makes FOWC successful and we need your support, all of this happens with YOU. Raising money can be a exhausting endeavor, recruiting volunteers, creating buzz and organizing the event itself. Needs include: donating 15 minutes at events, donating snacks, helping make flyers, organizing events, and supporting these events. This parent group wouldn't or won't be possible without each and every one of you. We are very appreciative of the financial, and volunteer support many have offered through the years. Without parent groups the costs for field trips would increase and classroom supplies would increase. It's also takes a parent to organize the kids academy clubs which offers programs after school. This can only be operational with volunteers to assist with these events. Parent support in collaboration with Mrs. Rineer and all of our wonderful teachers is what makes our school amazing! Any contribution of money or time is greatly appreciated to keep our parent group prospering. Please contact us or attend a meeting!
Thank you Friends of Williams-Cone,
