Growing Lifelong Learners Since 1972

Wingra School's 40th Anniversary Celebration
May 5, 2012

Our 40th Anniversary Celebration was a wonderful event. It was fun to see all of the alumni, families, students and staff come together to celebrate. It is a different place in 2012 than it was in 1972. But the heart of Wingra, grounded by the vision of our founders - Lois Anderson, Lois Brualdi, Margaret Napier, Judy Richardson Siegfried, and Alma Taeuber- remains unchanged.

Thank you to those who participated in the auction. It was a great success and we raised over $6,400 to benefit our Wings for Wingra Annual Fund, the Joyce Perkins Scholarship Fund and our Capital Campaign, in order to support our staff and educational program, provide tuition assistance, and maintain and enhance our building and grounds.

Thank You

This event would not be possible without the help of many people pitching in. A big thanks to the many volunteers and Wingra staff who went above and beyond to help make the 40th Anniversary Celebration a wonderful success!
