“Since 2011, WIDA has been fortunate to share an invaluable Adopt a School relationship with Midvale Elementary. Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of not just collaborating and connecting with educators, but also with students through our volunteer work in classrooms and at school events. Through events like educator roundtables, we’ve gained valuable insight into how to better support educators, students, and families.” 

– Rachel Maske, Finance Coordinator, WIDA
