Thank you to last year's supporters!

Thanks to generous support from families and businesses last year, and much hard work from our activity coordinators, WEF and PTO raised over $20,000 last year and provided educational teacher grants, enrichment programs, school assemblies, teacher support, recognition initiatives, and Winfield Studios podcast studio and green screen room. PTO also purchased new athletic uniforms for our sports teams. Your support also helped us rally around our community during this pandemic through initiatives such as a blood drive, recognition of preschool and 8th grade graduates, recognition of essential workers, and delivery of safety supplies. WEF was also able to fund several summer remote learning supports to keep our students engaged during this pandemic summer, including a middle school book club, virtual band lessons. virtual basketball camp, and “summer Wednesday” unique learning opportunities with teachers.

WEF is extremely grateful for last year’s premier community partners:

Supporting local businesses

We would like to extend a “no strings attached” invitation to all local businesses to let us know how we can assist - promoting their services, sharing news and information, and encouraging our school community to support local at a time when it’s more important than ever. Please contact Eileen Tibble (wef@winfield34.org) and let us know how we can support you and we will do our best! Please spread the word.

Successful Blood Drive

Thank you to all our donors and volunteers during WEF's first community Blood Drive. We had 36 donations, which helps up to 108 people in need of blood! Thank you to the Village of Winfield, Winfield Park District, Winfield Library, and all of you for sharing information about the event. We appreciate Versiti Winfield and note that you can schedule an appointment anytime at their local center.

Congratulations 2019-2020 graduates

WEF is proud to share in the excitement of our 2020 graduates! While this may not be the graduation experience you hoped for, it's one you likely will never forget. We wish you the best as you move on to the next chapter in your education! You are well-prepared!
