Dear Friends and Families of the Wetherill School,

This fall marks the 41st year of the Wetherill School. Last year’s 40th Anniversary was a wonderful year for celebrating the traditions and community of Wetherill, which has played such an important role in all of our lives by shaping our young children. It was also a year of broader outreach to the existing and former Wetherill community, which resulted in larger participation in annual giving and a higher Gala attendance. Wetherill’s parent participation has been limited in years prior, so let’s keep the momentum going this year!

The Annual Fund is a critical part of Wetherill’s fundraising efforts. It helps to close the gap between revenue from tuition and the total operating cost of the school. It helps the school to maintain the standards that we all have grown accustomed to through updated materials and classroom investment. The programs that enrich our children’s experience such as Riverbend’s weekly nature visits, the annual ballet performance, and the other musicians and storytellers who visit are all possible because of your donations. In addition, your generous gifts support student scholarships, faculty professional development, and much-needed facilities updates.

We understand that this is an extremely busy time of year and that many important and valuable organizations are soliciting donations. For Wetherill, every donation of any denomination makes an impact on the school. Know that a donation of $25 could keep 5 children happily coloring with markers all year, $100 could buy a new pink tower or puzzle map, and the annual cost of mulch on the much-adored playground is $5,000 alone. We would ask you to consider giving whatever you feel comfortable with, in order to help this wonderful school continue to thrive. Please consider helping us to meet our goal of 100% parent participation.

Wishing you and yours the greatest of holiday seasons and a wonderful New Year!
