We are so fortunate to live in a community who supports our students, teachers and our staff!

Besides providing scholarships for our high school seniors, here are a few things we've done this past year at West Platte thanks to you and your support:

TEACHER GRANTS awarded through the Foundation:
-Elementary teacher received electrical engineering kits for K-12.
-Parents as Teachers received money for the stuffed animal clinic for PAT students and preschool kids. Fun way to teach career education in the medical field and ease fears when they visit the doctor, dentist, pediatrician, etc...

-High school student received money for expenses to attend 2018 Southwestern Division American Choral Directors Association Conference in Oklahoma City.
-FBLA students attended Nationals in Baltimore and didn't have enough money raised.
-Fifth grade student received 2 new pairs of shoes! First time he had new shoes.
-Two of our elementary students lost everything to a house fire. The Foundation and PTO helped purchase clothes, coats, gloves and hats so they could get back to school.
-Destination Imagination students needed some assistance to attend Nationals.
-Three kids in elementary needed a hand up with back to school clothes. The Foundation purchased 3 gift cards to get them ready for school.

Without our supporters, we wouldn't be able to provide the assistance to these awesome teachers and students! Thank you!!
