Golf event aims to help public schools

The Wayzata Public Schools Education Foundation will host its first golf event at the Wayzata Country Club on Monday. The event will include a hole-in-one car, other prizes and appetizers following the event.

Sponsorship and golfing opportunities are still available. For more information, contact co-chairs Joan Curtiss at 952-221-0208 or Tom Cullum at 612-306-4955 or visit the foundation’s website at WPSEF.org.

Since 2007, the foundation has awarded nearly $120,000 in grants to Wayzata Public School.

Literacy volunteers needed to help students

Wayzata Public Schools is seeking volunteers for the district’s Literacy Volunteer Program which pairs adults with third- through fifth-grade students who are struggling readers.

Students read to the volunteers using a curriculum that is focused around award-winning children’s literature. Volunteer options include once or twice a week or every other week for a half hour at a time. Training is provided by the district’s language arts resource teacher and there is room to work around individual schedules. For information, contact Charlene Barghini at 763-745-5208 or by email at charlene.barghini@wayzata.k12.mn.us.
