MetroWest Master Association has a long tradition of supporting the community’s elementary schools with cash donations, starting with MetroWest Elementary School more than two decades ago then Westpointe Elementary School when it opened in 2017. Over the last 10 years, MWMA has donated more than more than $100,000 to the schools, with the donations allowing the schools to enhance and enrich the learning experience for teachers and students.
In 2020, MWM doubled its usual annual donation for a total of $20,000 for the schools. Dr. Atresa F. Grubbs-Holmes, Westpointe Elementary Principal, says that these additional funds allowed the school to hire three tutors who provide tutoring to students who are face-to-face and LaunchED@home. Tutoring is provided three evenings a week on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 5 to 6:30 p.m. online. The academic focus areas are English Language Arts (ELA), Writing, and Math.
Thanks to the MWMA donation, MetroWest Elementary School was able to hire an interventionist, Ms. Maria Garcia, who works with third through fifth grade students who need additional academic support for reading and math.
“MetroWest Elementary is grateful for the donation we received to be used for tutoring,” says Dr. Xhuljeta Gjini, MetroWest Elementary Principal.
