As many of you know, the state of California has changed the way our schools are funded, and as a result, DUSD and Wells have seen significant budget cuts. Your Wells PFC (Parent Faculty Club) is doing our best to fill in those gaps, so our students feel less of an impact on their opportunities to thrive!
Here are some of the extras we fund throughout the year:
– Assemblies: $3,200
– Student planners: $4,600
– Library books: $7,000
– Student of the month/quarter: $2,000
– Character Education program: $1,000
– Scholastic magazine subscriptions for CORE: $3,500
– Hospitality committee (takes care of our staff!): $3,500
– STIPENDS for ALL teachers: $11,000
Total: Over $35,000!! And we cover many more programs and activities….
How can you help? During the month of October, we are having a Donation Drive at Wells!
You can donate online at www.wellspfc.org, or drop a check at the office made out to “Wells PFC”. Every dollar counts, and we need your dollars to keep up the good work! Our goal is $15,000 by the end of October. We are on our way to reaching our goal thanks to donations at registration. Keep an eye on the thermometer out front to see progress!
Another opportunity to support Wells, and have a great night out, is to attend the annual Crab Feed! This year, the theme is “Viva Las Vegas”! The Crab Feed is March 2nd at Shannon Community Center.
As parents ourselves, we say to you….Thank you so much for any and all support you can give!
