Dear Wooster Community,
Generosity has been integral to the Wooster ethos since the founding of our school in 1926. As members of the Wooster community, we give generously of our time, our treasure and our good spirit, and we always have. Our generosity supports a school community and culture that “minds what matters” when it comes to the development of our children. With generosity comes gratitude. Thank you all for what you have done for our community.
We give generously to the Annual Appeal because we know that it enables us to continue to develop the people and programs necessary to produce compassionate, intellectual, and purposeful young people. In recent years, programs like Singapore Math, Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop, Making Thinking Visible, Humanities, Makerspace, Lego Robotics, Digital Video Production, and the Center for Social Impact would not have been possible without support from Annual Appeal funds. The Annual Appeal also helps us to support our philosophy of variable tuition, which helps to ensure that we are making the Wooster experience accessible to as many local families as possible.
We give generously at the Gala because we know that those additional funds support improvements to our learning environments. The SciBox, Makerspace, Reception Center, Dining Room, Playground, and sidewalk project are all recent examples of what a generous community can do together.
Your generosity also reminds those of us who work at Wooster of the importance of our mission. It humbles us and strengthens our resolve to keep doing better. Because of your sustained generosity over the years, we continue to thrive together. Let’s make this a great year.
Head of School
