Wilshire Park Parent Association (WPPA) focuses on enhancing the school experience at Wilshire Park for every student. This is done through family involvement, building a sense of community, and supporting the school and staff through volunteer time and fund raising. Monies raised by SANBE are used to support our creative-learning grant program, which awards grants to teachers and staff members. These grants support innovative learning opportunities to district students.
SANBE Grants to Support Teachers exists to provide additional resources to enhance the quality of educational programs in Independent School District 282. Funds raised by the Foundation are used to support a grant program which awards money to teachers and staff within the district. These grants support innovative learning opportunities for all students.
Community Fundwas created in 2016, the formal purpose of the SANBE Community Fund is to remove barriers for children and their families to full and equitable participation in the immediate as well as broader school community. School district staff utilize the SANBE Community Fund as a resource for students throughout this school year. When staff identify financial barriers to students’ participation in school and related activities, they connect with a Point of Contact at school to see if the Community Fund can assist in removing those barriers.
Throughout the school year there are multiple opportunities for the community to participate in the fundraising efforts of the SANBE Foundation. This includes a variety of options including SAV for the Future Dinner (an annual fundraiser dinner at Jax Café benefiting the SANBE Education and Endowment Foundations and includes a dinner, silent auction, and much fellowship.) The WPPA also raises funds through school supply orders as well as various new and emerging opportunities.
