Our high schools have a special end-of-year celebration sponsored by the Elmbrook Education Foundation called Most Influential Educators. Twenty-six Elmbrook seniors who have achieved academic excellence were asked to nominate a teacher who had a significant, positive impact on their education. The following Elmbrook teachers were chosen as “Most Influential Educators” for 2020 and will be honored via video on the District’s YouTube channel on Sunday, June 14 at 3pm.
Congratulations to the Class of 2020! To view the Elmbrook Education Foundation Scholarship winners click here.
Helen Andrews served Elmbrook Schools for over 40 years, most notably as the head forensics coach at Pilgrim Park Middle School. She passed away in February, 2019, and her family, along with the Elmbrook Education Foundation, created the Helen Andrews Memorial Scholarship in her honor. The $1500 award will be granted to a BEHS graduating senior who participated in PPMS Forensics. Congratulations to this year's recipient, Simrah Ahmed! Please consider donating to continue this scholarship for graduating classes to come. Thank you for your donation and support of our graduating seniors!!

The Elmbrook Education Foundation, founded in 1958 by parents and community partners, has provided scholarships and grants to Elmbrook educators, students, and schools for over 60 years. Since 2000, the foundation has awarded over $425,000 in grants. This year 8 grants were awarded through the District! We couldn’t do what we do without the support of our many sponsors and donors including our major sponsors: Mathnasium, The Offsite Collaboration Center, Fiserv, Milwaukee Tool, G2 Insurance, and CG Schmidt.
The Elmbrook Education Foundation (EEF) has been carefully monitoring the COVID-19 situation in hopes of gaining a better understanding of a time when people may once again safely gather. While we had hoped to be able to postpone our signature Circle of Friends fundraising event that was originally scheduled for April 16th, it has become clear that this will not happen during the current school year. Therefore, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Circle of Friends 2020.
