									Examples of School – Community Partnerships


Many businesses and community organizations have already adopted at least
one of our public schools. Partners are at work in our city's schools year round,
improving student achievement in a number of highly effective and creative ways:

             UW Retirees adopted Midvale/Lincoln Elementary School by providing
              funds to help build the Individual School Endowment as well as
              volunteering to work one-on-one with students. Volunteers also serve as
              ‘classroom grandparents,’ help in the library and provide child care so that
              parents are able to attend student-teacher conferences.

             UW Retirees adopted Hawthorne Elementary School by providing funds
              to help build the Individual School Endowment as well as volunteering to
              work one-on-one with students.

             CUNA Mutual Group has donated the use of space for events scheduled to
              help build a school’s endowment fund; they have donated over 60 printers
              to the district and have just introduced their “Growing in the Right
              Direction” Scholarships which will be awarded to a graduating senior in
              each Dane County high school.

             First Business Bank adopted Lowell Elementary School by providing
