Wayzata foundation schedules golf event
The Wayzata Public Schools Education Foundation will be hosting its first golf event at the Wayzata Country Club on Sept. 16, including a hole-in-one car, other prizes and appetizers following the event.
Sponsorship and golfing opportunities are still available. If you are interested or have any questions, contact Joan Curtiss at 952-221-0208 or Tom Cullum at 612-306-4955 or visit the foundation’s website at www.wpsef.org.
The foundation helps sustain the high quality of education in the Wayzata Public Schools. Since 2007, nearly $120,000 has been awarded in grants to the schools.
Parent input sought on safe school routes
Edina parents are being asked to complete an online survey to improve opportunities for children to walk or bike to school.
Since 2010, Bloomington Public Health has partnered with the city of Edina and the Edina Public Schools to help promote walking and bicycling. This has included the installation of 12 bike racks throughout city parks and 12 additional bike racks at Edina schools.
The collaborative is working to create comprehensive Safe Routes to School (SRTS) plans for both the city and Edina Public Schools.
In addition to providing valuable information for the developers of the SRTS plan, by participating in the survey, parents may also help secure additional state funding for infrastructure improvements as part of the plan.
All responses will be kept confidential and no names will be collected or associated with the results. Go to www.survey monkey.com/s/WalkBiketo School to take the survey.
