What are Walgroovies?

Walgroovies are gatherings hosted by school families designed to bring together the Walgrove community while fundraising on behalf of the school.  Walgroovy events range from family movie night to kids’ craft parties to dinner parties for adults.

How do they make money?

Walgroovies are sponsored and paid for entirely by host families.  Each event has a requested per person or per family donation.  All of the money donated by event attendees goes straight to Friends of Walgrove.

100% of ALL donations goes to fund our enrichments and teachers’ aides.
