Thank a Teacher is now Highlight a Hero!

The Wayzata Education Fund is kicking off our annual Spring drive with a major change. We are changing the name from Thank a Teacher to Highlight a Hero. Why change? The community spoke and we listened. We heard feedback that we have so many amazing teachers and staff that are heroes in multiple roles at Wayzata Public Schools. Highlight a Hero allows families and community members to honor teachers and staff throughout Wayzata Public Schools who have made an impact on their child and family, while making a donation to the Wayzata Education Fund’s curricular grant program.

When you donate to highlight your Wayzata Public Schools hero, your recipient will be presented with a certificate of appreciation with your students’ name included. Each donation of $25 or more (per recipient) will include a bundtlet along with the certificate, thanks to our partnership with Nothing Bundt Cakes, Minnetonka.

We would also like to thank our student run Compass team from the high school. They’ve created a lot of great content and are driving the process this spring!

The Spring 2023 Highlight a Hero program has closed for the spring season.
