Friends of Gus Wetter

For those of you new to our school, the Friends of Gus Wetter Foundation is a non-profit charitable group that was started in 1998 by parents and school alumni members. At that time our school was in desperate need of new computers. Letters were sent to all alumni members in order to start raising much needed funds. With a generous starting donation from Dr. Russell Schnell we raised over $9000.00 that year and were able to purchase 5 new computers and the school's first digital camera.

Since 1998 we have raised over $100,000 for Gus Wetter. The Foundation has helped with the purchase of smartboards, computers, LCD projectors, cameras, scanners, sound system, library furnishings, science lab equipment and theatrical productions. The items we have been able to purchase have benefitted all grade levels at Gus Wetter. We are proud and excited to have been able to enhance the education of Gus Wetter students.

Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Friends of Gus Wetter Foundation may contact Kaye Hauck at 403 882-2952 or Shelly Pals at 403 882-2684. Members meet once a year for a general meeting.
