Gifts to Elmbrook Exceed $625K

Community members and groups donated more than $625,000 in gifts to the Elmbrook School District in the 2011-12 school year. See the list of donors by school and the thanks from top school leaders.

Elmbrook's academic and extracurricular achievements are rooted in the "happy confluence of three things," School Board President Tom Gehl said at Monday night's annual meeting.

Families, community and teachers.

The support of the community is as important as the students, parents and teachers, Gehl said. From property taxes to charitable donations, local residents do much to keep Elmbrook successful, he and Superintendent Mark Hansen said.

Gehl offered "heartfelt thanks" the each of the people and groups in the list below who donated to the district in the 2011-12 school year. Gifts totaled more than $625,000.
