Will you go to Prom with WEF?
That’s right, the Wilton Education Foundation is throwing a Prom–for grown-ups! Ask your steady to be your date, and get out your best prom dresses and tuxedos (retro or modern) on Friday, March 24, from 7:30-11:30 p.m. at Rolling Hills Country Club. There will be dinner, dancing, a live auction, and lots more fun for an incredible night to remember.
This gala fundraiser will benefit the Wilton Public Schools’ Library Learning Commons Initiative, a bold step that will propel students and faculty into the next era of education and revolutionize the way Wilton students will approach learning.
The Learning Commons Initiative reflects the current revolution in library and media science. To make the project a reality involves not only a renovation of the physical space in each of Wilton’s four schools, but also a comprehensive transformation of the “virtual space,” helping create, convert and organize the district’s digital collections, as well as requiring curriculum changes. Harnessing cloud based applications and integrating powerful hi-tech tools into instruction will transform our schools into student-centered, digital learning environments.
This ambitious, district-wide project represents a philosophical transformation in the way students will be prepared to harness technology, learn collaboratively and arm themselves with 21st century skills.
This shift presents limitless opportunities for individual and group learning, collaboration, communication and problem solving, exponentially changing the way students learn and leading efforts for where schools are headed. What’s more, it helps administrators get closer to their goal of enabling both students and the wider Wilton community to access available resources 24/7.
