Thank a Teacher is Back for the Holidays

We are proud to announce that our Thank a Teacher program is back for the holidays! With all that’s going on this year it’s extremely important that we honor the teachers and staff at our Wayzata Public Schools. They’re all working extremely hard to keep things moving during this especially challenging year!

Each donation made through this program provides funds to our curricular grant fund, and your teacher gets a custom certificate thanking them for their work. Plus, for each donation of $25 or more, your teacher will receive a mini bundt from Nothing Bundt Cakes – Minnetonka.

Our plan is to deliver bundt cakes to the staff as long as it is safe to do so. Hopefully we can get them all delivered before Winter Break but we will work with the district to ensure everyone’s safety.

September update from the Wayzata Education Fund

As we start this unprecedented school year we are working to find the best way to support the district. Over the past two board meetings we decided on several actions.

First, we are postponing our annual Drive 4 Excellence Golf Tournament. It was a difficult decision, but feel that the event would have to have significant changes that would reduce the size and scope dramatically.  We have rescheduled the event for 9/20/2021 at the Medina Country Club. More to follow as we get closer. Save the date!

Second, we are currently not accepting grant applications. If you have a grant idea that simply cannot wait, please reach out to us via our Contact Us page.

Look for us later this year as we re-open the Thank a Teacher program in November!

We would also like to acknowledge the staff of the district, the school board, and Superintendent Anderson for their hard work so far and the work yet to come. This is a situation that is difficult to manage with new information flowing all the time. This year more than ever we need to support each other and do what we can to act as one team to support the staff and our kids.
