The Elmbrook Education Foundation (EEF) recently presented an $80,000 check to the School District of Elmbrook for the Shared Theatre and Fine Arts Initiative. The funds were raised through the EEF Ladies Night event, generous donations from the Elmbrook community, and $40,000 in matching funds from the Schlifske Family Foundation. These funds will go towards updated microphones and sound and lighting equipment that will be used by all performing groups at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center from high school to elementary musicals, and beyond.
The "Forest Hipp Young Entrepreneur Scholarship" and is for an Elmbrook graduate pursuing a degree supportive of an entrepreneurial journey. This student should demonstrate strong leadership, excellent communication skills, and the goal of starting a business. Forest Hipp said, "I graduated from Brookfield Central in the class of 2022. I wanted to find a way to support future graduates who shared the same vision as me. Entrepreneurship has been a huge part of my life growing up in the Elmbrook district. This scholarship became a great opportunity to give back."
Last spring, the Elmbrook Education Foundation (EEF) made a generous donation of $25,000 to Elmbrook’s elementary schools to supply classrooms with sensory toolkits. The desire for tools and strategies stemmed from the feedback of elementary staff and are intended to support students as they develop self-regulation, improve focus, and increase participation. Providing these tools in classrooms supports the sensory needs of our students, which in turn makes learning more accessible. Having these sensory tools available in elementary classrooms and training staff on effective utilization has supported our efforts to meet the unique learning needs of all elementary students.
