WSWCA Supports McCall Elementary: A 2015 Initiative

As an organization committed to making Washington Square West a wonderful place to live and work, our mission includes making our local school a tremendous place for our children to have safe, meaningful, enjoyable, and impactful experiences at school. To that end, at our February 2015 meeting, the WSWCA board elected to allocate $1500 of our budget to efforts, programs, & initiatives to support McCall Elementary School. We are also committed to finding ways to get our membership more involved in supporting our school. Let’s show our teachers, students, and parents that WSWCA members care about education in our neighborhood, and pitch in to make our local elementary school the most wonderful place possible!

Here are easy & meaningful ways to get involved & support McCall:

McCall is seeking folks who can come to help during class time with reading, writing, & math. Your time and support as an in-class volunteer is an incredible resource, and makes a tremendous difference if you are able to come in during school hours. If you are interested in providing this vital volunteer service, please contact the McCall school nurse, who handles coordination of volunteers. She can be emailed directly at

If you make a donation, or volunteer your time, please let WSWCA board member Justine Haemmerli know, at; your name & information will not be shared, but will be added to a list of WSWCA members supporting McCall as part of our tracking the impact of this program.
