Welcome to the Kaiser and Woodland Elementary Schools Foundation
The Kaiser Woodland Schools Foundation's primary focus is to support interactive, cutting-edge Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) instruction for the students at Kaiser and Woodland elementary schools.
- The Foundation supports yearlong, lab-based science instruction from a designated science teacher for all of Woodland’s 1st and 2nd graders. Woodland is the only elementary school to provide this hands-on curriculum.
- In 2014-2015, the Foundation is supporting a hands-on, project-based engineering curriculum for all 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. The program will build upon the existing lab-based science program the Foundation has supported for the last few years. Kaiser will be the only elementary school in the Newport-Mesa Unified school district to provide this type of engineering curriculum to its students.
Beyond STEM instruction, the Foundation’s funds and resources are used to support faculty enrichment, facilities improvements, cutting-edge technology for state of the art teaching, and targeted program enhancements identified by the school Principals. The Foundation works in cooperation with the PFO to provide additional resources for improvements to the educational environment.
