EWEA is fortunate to have a very strong PRIDE and FAST program.

Our PRIDE/FAST Chair is Angela Castaneda. She is totally committed to working on getting EWEA lots of PRIDE/FAST grant money for many activities next year.  Last year, we received over $50,000 in PRIDE/FAST grant money!!

This money comes from YOUR dues! You make it happen!

Look at this list and see where YOU can help! We cannot do this without YOU!

PRIDE grants are for general community activities. These have ALL been approved and need your help

FAST (Families and Schools Together)is a program that works as a bridge between the families of our bilingual students and our schools. Our goal is to get the families into our schools, feeling comfortable there so that we can help them help their children. Although the program was mostly at the McKnight School, our brothers and sisters at Kreps got the fever too.

We need YOUR help! Come to one of our FAST events and see how wonderful it is when we are all working together towards a common goal. Join a committee at your building. Volunteer to participate in a PRIDE or FAST event. It’s really just  saying “hello”, distributing free “giveaways”, and taking “attendance” from community members.  Yes…we need YOU.

Be on the look-out for an email from Angela asking you to help at one of the events. It can’t happen without YOU!
