Fundraising at WJ
There are many ways to financially help Walter Johnson, many at no additional cost to you other than the few minutes it takes to register. Following is information about the school's fundraising groups and fund raising initiatives. REGISTER for those that are cost-free! Peruse the WJ Dining Fundraisers Calendar and be sure to support these businesses that give a percentage of proceeds to WJ.
- WJ Booster Club
- The WJ Booster Club was the first Montgomery County School to
support all extracurricular activities. Among other things, the booster
club provides athletic and musical equipment, along with supporting
clubs like Amnesty International, Mock Trial and Robotics and
publications like The Pitch and Spectator. Funding comes from your
membership, and your generosity benefits all WJ students.
- Your contribution lets us publish and distribute The Big Train
newsletters and The Lineup student directory, fund the Freshman family
picnic, staff appreciation events and awards, provide financial support
to the Guidance Advisory and Prom Breakfast committees, and aid the WJ
Student Government Association.
- WJ Education Foundation
- The foundation ensures that current and future WJ students have continuing opportunities for academic rigor and social and emotional growth in a state of the art facility that complements excellent academic programs.
- The foundation generally meets the first Wednesday of the month at 7:30 PM in the WJ Media Center. Visit the WJ Calendar page for specific meeting dates.
- Visit the WJ Ed Foundation webpage to learn more.
WJ Education Foundation Brick Sale
As part of Walter Johnson High School's renovation, a custom brick walkway was installed between the building and tennis courts. The walkway has over 300 engraved bricks, but we have room for more. You are invited to be a part of this project and of WJ’s legacy by contributing a permanently engraved brick for the walkway.Your bricks can be engraved with the name of a student, family, teacher, coach, club, or team and will remain a permanent part of WJ. Funds raised will go to the WJHS Education Foundation to be used to support student programs, staff development, and enhancements to WJ's media center and other facilities. The purchase of these bricks is open to current students and parents as well as WJ alumni.
WJ Education Foundation Auditorium Seat Sponsorship
Sponsor a seat in the new auditorium by purchasing a 1 inch by 1 ½ inch engraved brass plate to be displayed on a plaque outside the auditorium. The cost is $200 per brass plate with 2 line engraving. The purchase of these plates is open to current students as well as WJ alumni. There are 240 seat plates available.
If you have sponsored a seat, please look at the text of your plate in the List of Seat Plates. (April 6, 2010) Report any typos or corrections to Seth Meyers.
