Thank you CT State Police Troop D Quality of Life Task Force for your support of education in Woodstock through the Woodstock Education Foundation. Thank you also to the Lusignan family for their generous support. Community support such as this allows the WEF to fund education enrichment programs for students in Woodstock's K-12 public schools - programs that otherwise would not be possible.
Thank you for your support!
Since 2005, the WEF has provided nearly $400,000 in funding for teachers and administrators for more than 133 unique educational enrichment programs.
For the 2018-2019 school year, the WEF awarded over $32,000 in teacher-initiated grants to the Woodstock Public Schools.
Bound for Washington, DC!
8th Grade Class Trip
The tours and Newseum portions of the WMS 8th grade class trip were proudly funded by the Woodstock Education Foundation. Donations to the WEF help support educational enrichment programs such as this, and we are grateful for the support of the Woodstock area community!
INSPIRING STUDENT STORIES
"Joining the WMS Public Speaking program was one of the most important decisions I ever made. Participating in this program, as well as in other WEF funded activities such as History Day and Math Olympiad, helped me to develop the necessary skills and self-confidence to excel in and out of school. I am grateful to WEF for supporting the programs that helped prepare me for success in high school, college, and beyond."
– Brendan Chapuis, The Woodstock Academy, Class of 2018; Harvard College, Class of 2022
“I am grateful for the opportunities from the Woodstock Education Foundation that granted my growth as a leader in many programs at The Woodstock Academy. In middle school I challenged myself to become a better and more confident speaker in public speaking, drama club, and with my participation in History Day. All these programs have led me to be a leader in volleyball, music, and drama, and have allowed myself to go beyond my limits to achieve great things."
– Samantha Orlowski, Woodstock Academy Class of 2019
