The Elmbrook Education Foundation supports the students at all 11 of the District's public schools through its Continuing Education Scholarship, Innovation Grant and Super Grant Programs. In addition, the Foundation has established an endowment held by the Waukesha County Community Foundation to provide a source of permanent support for Foundation programs. For more information, please refer to the Foundation's web site.
The Elmbrook Education Foundation kicked off the holiday season and finished 2011 with the party of all time .... the 8th annual Ladies Night at the Westmoor Country Club held on 11/29/11.
This event was generously sponsored by Pasternak & Zirgibel, S.C.. and raised nearly $36,000 (a new record for this event) to help support Foundation programs which extend all of the great work that is going on in our schools thanks to committed staff, parents, PTOs, and booster clubs.
We would also like to recognize our Associate and Scholar level supporting event sponsors for the evening:
- Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare - Elmbrook Memorial
- M3 Insurance Solutions
- ActionCOACH Business Coaching, Elm Grove
- C.G. Schmidt Construction
- Nistler Law Office
The Elmbrook School District may be closing Hillside Elementary in Spring, but the past and present Hillside community is taking steps to make sure that Hillside is not forgotten in Elmbrook anytime soon.
Hillside Elementary has established the "Hillside Student Scholarship Fund" on behalf of past and present students. The Hillside PTO has committed a portion of their current reserves to start the fund and will be partnering with the EEF to further develop the fund through the remainder of the school year. Hillside staff, parents, alumni, and retirees are all encouraged to be part of developing this fund as the balance will determine how many scholarships can be awarded annually to prior Hillside students through 2024 .... the final year that Hillside's final kindergarten class will be graduating from Elmbrook.
