The Woodrow Wilson Foundation, Inc. was established in 2004 to augment the facilities, technology, and programs at Woodrow Wilson Middle School. The Foundation Board, guided by the Principal, uses funds raised to go beyond the basic needs covered by state and county funding.

In past years, the Foundation has provided a computer lab, restoration of the hardwood floors in the hallways, tables and umbrellas for outside the lunchroom, murals in the library media center, lunchroom, and auditorium, SMART boards, ELMO document cameras, additional classroom sets of textbooks as well as professional development for teachers and staff. More recently, the Foundation has provided security cameras, short throw projectors, tablets, the video lab, and substitute teachers to cover while our classroom teachers are at trainings. 

What happens within these walls is truly special and we as parents are blessed to have such a wonderful group of teachers, staff, and administration. I encourage everyone to find a way to become involved and invested in Woodrow Wilson Middle School.
