Dear Wood-Ridge Community,

     It is with great pride that I write this letter. With the help and support of the parents, guardians, teachers, administrators and community members of Wood-Ridge, a simple vision to improve the education of our children has become a reality with the formation of the Wood-Ridge Public Education Foundation.

     The WRPEF is a non-profit organization consisting of parents and community members of Wood-Ridge. The WRPEF understands that in order for Wood-Ridge students to succeed and remain competitive with other schools, additional funding is required for technology, enrichment programs, textbooks, and developmental plans, beyond what the State currently provides.

     It is the Foundation’s goal to raise funds from corporate donations, fundraising events, and community donors. Without the help and support of this community, we will not be able to provide our children with the educational programs and cutting-edge education they deserve and need to be successful in the future.

     We have many fun and exciting events planned in the upcoming months to assist in achieving our goals, so please check back often for updates.

     Once again, I want to thank the many members of this Foundation for their encouragement, support, and ideas. I look forward to seeing all of you at our various events planned throughout the year.
