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 EEF Board of Directors has recently announced their support for the District's implementation of the Gateway to Technology (GTT) program at both of Elmbrook's Middle Schools.
Elmbrook is already a leader with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) curriculum at the High School through its offering of the Project Lead the Way (PLTW) program. PLTW courses benefit students that elect to take these classes. In comparison, the Gateway to Technology foundation units will be integrated into the core curriculum at both of Elmbrook's middle schools. This benefits ALL students by emphasizing critical thinking, creativity, innovation and real-world problem solving. GTT specialization units will be made available through elective coursework to extend the curriculum for those with a passion for STEM topics. Please refer to the STEM Campaign page on the Foundation's website for additional information.
This program would not be made available without EEF support. We would love to see GTT in Elmbrook as early as the 2013-14 school year; however, the Foundation needs support from the Elmbrook community in order to make this program a reality. Businesses, residents, parents, etc. with an interest in helping bring this program to life in Elmbrook should contact the Foundation at email@example.com.
Donations are sincerely appreciated. Please see the 2012-13 Pledge Form on the Foundation's website or Donate Online!
