Notes from WCFE General Meeting on 9/11/23:
Senior Class Advisor, Sheri Donovan, then spoke to request 2023/24 WCFE funding of at least $5,000 to help cover the cost of 2024’s senior class Grad Night as well as some upfront costs for the Jr./Sr. Prom. She shared that this year’s class account has a current balance of $6,000 compared to totals of $11,000 and $15,000 in the prior two years, due in large part to challenges in accruing funds during the school years impacted by COVID. WCFE Treasurer Alice shared that the approved budget currently includes $3,500 allocated to the senior class, and WCFE President Natasha Fine said that the Board would consider Ms. Donovan’s request for the additional funding in time for a formal response by late October/early November.

Grad Night – Biggest expense and lots of volunteers needed to help & chaperone
Prom – Chaperone and donation help needed
The Senior class has been working on fundraisers to help meet their financial goals to make Grad Night a reality, including some of the below past and future events (future events pending):
