ELP Parent Partnership
WELPP – West Des Moines ELP Parent Partnership
The 2018-19 school year marks the sixth year of the WDM ELP Parent Partnership, a district-wide, parent-run group. Our meetings are open to all interested parents and staff.
Mission: to create avenues for support, networking, information, and advocacy for high-ability learners and their families.
We will provide:
- a forum where parents can learn more about gifted education so as to better advocate and parent their children.
- a safe place to find support from one another and to network for ideas.
- a way to share ideas so that building representatives can take them back to our district advisory group meetings to inspire changes for our district’s ELP education program.
- inspiration for parents to partner with the district to create opportunities/enhancements for high-ability students.
WELPP is now able to receive tax-deductible donations to support educational opportunities for our parent community online through the WDMCS Foundation website. Select ELP Parent Partnership from the fund dropdown.
We can still accept checks as well. Please make checks payable to WDMCS Foundation and list WELPP in the memo line. Receipts will be issued for donations of $250 or more.
