WGHS Thanks Stone Church of Willow Glen!

We’re so grateful for the ongoing support from Stone Church for WG Cares.  Thank you for your wonderful efforts and your partnership to help our community!

Willow Glen Cares

The holidays were merry for many WGHS Families, thanks to Willow Glen Cares!
Over the last few weeks, our community has collected an amazing array of holiday gifts and parcels for 37 families in need at WGHS! A team of volunteers, led by coordinator, Liz Roselman, wrapped and prepared the wonderful donations of gifts gathered by many students, staff members, Willow Glen families and a variety of community groups. This is truly the spirit of giving at it’s finest.  The receiving students and families are unbelievably grateful for this outpouring of kindness and generosity.

Congratulations, WGHS Robotics!

Congratulations to our awesome robotics team led by Ahmad Khanssari, as they were just awarded a $2,000 grant from the Brin Wojcicki Foundation.  Way to go, robotics team!
