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.

In this program K-2 students explore the concepts of resource conservation and the power of imagination culminating in the creation of a sculpture to take home. There will be an age appropriate art activity using recycled and upcycled materials. Students will participate in a discussion on reduce-reuse-recycle-rediscover, will hear a reading of The Tin Forest, and will explore imaginative uses for everyday & unfamiliar upcycled materials. Throughout, reDiscover facilitators will teach about art concepts such as form, symmetry, pattern, balance, and biomimicry, connecting students’ creative expression to other works of art and natural examples.

You can drop off your child or stay to participate.
