The Impact of our Volunteers

As we head into the final days of preparation for our first ever virtual auction gala, I am incredibly impressed by the way this event has come together, in part due to the creativity and dedication of the Auction Committee and co-chairs. Our volunteers play a critical role in the life of the community, and we are deeply grateful for the contributions of your time and talents. 

The role that volunteers play have changed considerably this year with all of the regulations in place due to the pandemic. However, through inspiration and hard work, you have still found a way to make a substantial impact on the school. This year, you created and hosted virtual socials for both new and existing parents; prepared delicious snack carts for our very appreciative faculty; organized fundraising activities; taught as special guests via Zoom; and so much more. You have helped keep our community together at a time when we cannot gather in one space. And you created many of these roles through initiative and ingenuity – first you saw a need and then you stepped in to give a hand.  

Volunteering is critical because it both creates a pathway to build new relationships with others in the community, and also models the importance of service to our Dragons, inspiring them to give to others as well. 

Your enthusiasm for WES and continual support of our students has helped make this school year successful. Thank you for your contributions; we are all deeply grateful.
