In November 2019, Waynesburg Central Elementary School was awarded a nearly $500 Community Grant from The Community Foundation of Greene County. The grant was used to fund the “Once Upon A STEAM Night” family engagement activity held on December 4, 2019. At this event elementary students and family members created LED Christmas cards for their family and for a local Rehabilitation and Care Center with the help of elementary staff volunteers and high school student volunteers. Students and their families also participated in STEAM stations that revolved around fairytales. Through the use of Ozobots, BeeBots and STEM Tales students retold the fairytales and created objects to help the characters solve their problems, such as a bed for Goldilocks and a bridge for the Billy Goats in Three Billy Goats Gruff. On December 18, 2019 the 5th grade chorus delivered the LED Christmas Cards and ornaments to the Waynesburg Rehabilitation and Care Center, along with singing Christmas Carols for the residents and staff. Special thanks to the Community Foundation of Greene County for the grant to make these events possible. Memories were made by all this holiday season thanks to the CFGC!

The Lagonda Homemakers bestowed their talents and gifts upon Waynesburg Central Elementary School’s Angel Tree. Thanks to the efforts of Mrs. Laura Hilverding's (CGSD employee) many students will keep warm this winter. Homemade blankets, crocheted hats, and school supplies were donated to the school’s Angel Tree. There were over 55 blankets created and donated to Waynesburg Central Elementary Students. The Lagonda Homemakers mission is to help others by using their skills and talents. For more information about this group contact President, Mary Lee Quinn. Also, if you would like to donate fabric for future projects WCES will be collecting fabric (2 yards per blanket). Donations can be delivered to WCES Guidance Office.
