8 iMac's and MacBook Air computers for the computer lab and cart
Renewal of EnrichLA’s Garden Ranger Program for a second year
Teaching Aide for the School Computer Lab
Physical education program allowing grade-level teacher collaboration (50% with PTA)
Coding and robotics classes with Sigma Coding
MWE Chess Club with American Chess Academy
Master Chorale (if MWE is selected next year)
Campus beautification projects (including a new school sign and murals)
Phase 1 of a new outdoor science/art lab/creative space project
Friends of Mt. Washington School (FOMWS) is excited to continue our campaign supporting Mt. Washington Elementary School as a center of our community.
You can help the cause by purchasing weekly organic produce boxes, bringing recyclables to school on Green Team Mondays, volunteering and becoming a member of FOMWS. Membership is open to the community. Our fundraising efforts include our bi-annual rummage sales and our popular annual auction every Spring. The 11th Annual FOMWS Fiesta and Auction in May 2016 raised over $58,000 for our school which is being spent in much-needed capital improvements to the school grounds as well as enrichment and educational programs for our students this year.
Thanks to your support FOMWS was able to fund three after-school programs this school year, including a free Homework Club, Chess Club and Robotics Class. Click here to learn more about the after-school programs.
Also new for this school-year is Garden Committee partnership with Enrich LA. Learn more about the garden and how you can volunteer.
THANK YOU for making our public school great!
