Accepting Members & Donations

Purpose of the Woodland Education Foundation

The Foundation raises private sector funds to support academic initiatives and capital improvements at the Chatsworth Elementary School. This will be done largely through awarding teacher innovation grants and working with the Board of Education and school administration to identify target projects.


Profile of the Successful Board Member

The minimum time commitment for a board member includes 2 hours per month for the regular board meeting. However, the Foundation’s success in building and maintaining community support comes from board members that are able to make contributions of time and resources, have the determination to complete projects in a timely way with little oversight, and, most importantly, have a passion for true excellence in education!


Qualifications

Reflecting the community-wide impact of a strong public school system, the goal of the board is to be composed of individuals with varied backgrounds. Everyone willing to roll up their sleeves is welcome! Given the nature of our events and projects, we strongly encourage individuals to apply if they have specific experience in project management, public and media relations, marketing, fundraising, web design, and/or event planning.


Benefits of Board Membership

Members receive no compensation for serving on the Foundation’s Board. Low overhead and organizational cost ensures that the Foundation is able to direct the maximum amount of all donations towards initiatives in Chatsworth Elementary School. Board Members may get opportunities to work closely with PTOs, school administrators and District personnel. They can also help determine which projects, grants, and initiatives should receive Foundation sponsorship. Helping to create supplementary financial support for our schools is one of the most important and effective methods for fostering sustained academic innovation and excellence.

Fifth Grade

In preparation for learning about the American Revolution, our 5th graders recently completed a mini-research project which asked each student to research one of the original 13 colonies. Each student presented their research to the class and discussed how their colony was established. To showcase their colony, the students created “parade floats” from collected shoeboxes to proudly display what they have learned.
