Support WMS

Families are expected to participate in fundraising events as the funds directly contribute to the success of their child at Wah Mei School. Wah Mei School hosts two fundraisers each year.

Holiday Faire

This event takes place in early December.  Families can sign up to enjoy activities such as gingerbread house decorating and a photo with Santa.  There are always good raffle prizes to be had and plenty of holiday cheer to share.

Spring Gala

Each year, Wah Mei School hosts a spring event. The festivities often include a delicious Chinese banquet dinner, silent and live auctions, raffle, and a children’s performance.

Donations

Wah Mei School counts on the support of its families, alumni, and friends who give their time and energy in promoting our goal of providing a safe and nurturing learning environment that merges the best of both Chinese and American cultures. Wah Mei School strives to provide a quality education within the economical means of its community. However, Wah Mei School and its teachers need your help in sustaining this goal.

Families and friends have been very generous through their gifts of donations whether it be money or equipment to Wah Mei School. Donations have enabled Wah Mei School to provide a variety of experiences for our children and contribute overall to a more stimulating educational environment. The tuition at Wah Mei School only covers part of the costs of providing students with an outstanding bilingual and bicultural education. Wah Mei School depends on parents, alumni and friends to contribute at a level commensurate with their financial ability. No gift is too small or too large.

Other

If you wish, you may leave the use of your donation to the Director’s discretion or you can earmark it for a certain purpose. Would you like the school to bring in a specialist in a particular enrichment area (e.g. dance, music, nature, creative dramatics)? You, or perhaps several cooperating families, could allocate money for that purpose. So, use your imagination, or let us use ours.
