Dedham Savings Community Foundation Supports Walpole High School
The Dedham Savings Community Foundation has donated $2,500 to Walpole High School’s (WHS) Student Transition Room. The grant award will be used to help fund the purchase of new furniture and fixtures for students who utilize the resources of the WHS Transition Room as they work their way back to their full academic schedule after a major surgery or illness.
ABOUT Walpole High School’s Transition Room
The Transition Room at Walpole High School supports close to 100 students each school year after lengthy absences for a variety of circumstances, including major surgeries or other health matters. Regardless of the circumstances for participation in this program, the ultimate goal is to effectively support each student’s transition back to school and to their full academic schedule.
