Thanks to the generosity of our many corporate and individual donors, the Foundation is able to award more than $110,000 in grants to our public schools. At our December awards celebration, the following schools received grants:
Elementary Schools: Woodville, Roberts, Astoria Park, Pineview, Gilchrist, Kate Sullivan, Desoto, Bucklake, Hartsfield, Springwood, & Gilchrist
Middle Schools: Fairview & Fort Braden
High Schools: Godby, Lincoln, Rickards, LCS Virtual School & Pace Center for Girls
Additionally, thanks to the incredible support of UCompass, we will also be investing $40,000 in our Virtual School to help enhance and sustain our WeatherSTEM program that integrates STEM skills through the use of weather station instruments at all of our elementary schools.
It’s great to live in a community that understands the significance of sustaining enrichment programs that will enable us to continue to have one of the highest performing school districts in the state.
Wishing all of you a happy & healthy New Year!
