This annual event recognizes and celebrates Wallingford Public Schools alumni for their positive accomplishments and contributions to society. These individuals bring pride and inspiration to our community through their excellence in service in their chosen profession, outstanding recognition in their field, and/or their significant volunteer efforts. In May 2022, the Wallingford Education Foundation held its eighteenth dinner at which Michael A. Bonini, Mel Horowitz, and Joan Ives-Parisi were honored.

Spelling Bee Team Challenge

Individuals age 16 and older are invited to form a three-person team and participate in this fundraising event. Team members work collaboratively to determine the correct spelling of given words within a set time period. Teams are eliminated from play once they misspell a word. This is a great way to have fun while competing for top honors and other prizes. Teams from previous challenges have represented local businesses and community groups. Businesses also have the option of sponsoring a student team. The team registration fee along with other proceeds from this event benefit Wallingford Public Schools.
