Thank-A-Teacher Donors Have Named Their Teacher Heros
Thank you to everyone who donated to BWEF this holiday season through our Thank-A-Teacher program. Your teachers received a personal message from your child and a holiday card featuring student artwork, as well as the recognition they deserve as your teacher heros.
Be a Hero
Hero is a term that can mean different things to all of us. It conjures images of first responders, men and women of our military, teachers, parents or just a true friend.
The Bristol Warren Education Foundation's heroes are those who stand up in support of a high-quality education for all students. Our heroes include everyone who have pitched in to help drive our mission of promoting excellence in the Bristol Warren Regional School District.
We urge you to Be a Hero by joining us this fall during our 4th Annual Drive for Educational Excellence
. Please consider a tax-deductible donation that will help bring innovative, world-expanding opportunities to all Bristol Warren public school students.
Grants in Action
'Grants in Action' is the short documentary film, by filmmaker Katie Reaves, which illustrates a sampling of enrichment programs funded by BWEF during the 2010-11 school year in the Bristol Warren schools. Enjoy!

The Bristol Warren Education Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization of community volunteers committed to promoting novel approaches to student development that are outside the scope of existing school budgets. Through fundraising events and donations from individuals and businesses, BWEF provides grants to teachers and staff for innovative, high-quality programs that enhance and enrich our students' educational experience. During the 2013-14 school year BWEF is funding more than $50,000 in grants — since 2007 BWEF has funded more than $175,000 in grants. With your support, we can bring more music, more theatre, and more robotics into our classrooms.
