Because of your generosity, we will now be able to:
*Hire at least 4 part-time teachers for next year
*Provide additional technology for in-classroom use
*Purchase refills for the school building’s hand sanitizer stations
*Purchase bulletin boards for the new building’s classrooms and hallways.
The 2018 Commit to the W campaign started with the goal, set by Principal McNeill based on her class size and class offering wishes, of hiring 5 part-time teachers for next school year.
We are now just $42K away from being able to hire a 5th part-time teacher for WHS. If we receive enough donations from those that have not yet contributed and from the rising 9th grade class for next year to enable Principal McNeill to hire a 5th part-time teacher over the summer, she will do so.
Walton High School Foundation’s 2018 "Commit to the W" Campaign raised more than $160,000 - enough to hire 4 part-time teachers for next year!!!
There is still time to donate! Attention Rising 9th Graders:

Our Teachers Say It Best:
"The ability to hire a few more half-time teachers is tremendously helpful. Creating more classes for the same number of students in our student body allows for smaller class sizes. With smaller class sizes, teachers can give more written assignments and provide more meaningful feedback, teachers can assign more authentic products for students to produce with enough time to grade them, and group work can be done more easily and more manageably. We cannot thank the Foundation enough for their support in this endeavor; it makes a HUGE difference!"
