White Bear Lake Educational Foundation Holiday Angels Giving Campaign

Once again, the White Bear Lake Area Educational Foundation (WBLAEF) is offering an opportunity for district employees, parents and community members to participate in the Holiday Angels Giving Campaign.  Holiday Angels is a way to give in honor of someone important in your life.  Donors list the name of the individual (s) they would like to honor.  The honoree will receive a handwritten note card giving them special recognition.

All donations go to the Angel Fund, providing critical funding to district students and their families in need.  Unfortunately this year we have seen a record number of students on the fringe of homelessness, hungry and in need of assistance. With funds from Holiday Angel donations, WBLAEF will continue to provide support for prescriptions, assistance with funding for housing, heating costs, food, warm clothing and many other urgent needs.

Please download the attached pdf and return to the WBLAEF office, or click on the link to donate directly to the Holiday Angels campaign.  Thank you for your much needed support!

Lost & Found Items
Our Lost & Found is really starting to accumulate. Please take a moment at conferences to look through the items in hopes of claiming some of your child's belongings. We do not have the room to store lost and found items, therefore all items will be donated over MEA break. View

Attention Parents!
