$24,222 in Classroom Grants Awarded!
Teaching looks very different this year. Teachers like Megan Fielder have to be creative and find the most effective ways to explain and demonstrate material. This is why she was awarded an EEF Classroom Enhancement Grant for her $1,360 project "Math E-tools for Virtual Learning." The entire math department at Pioneer Middle School will now have access to on-line resources that will help provide new instructional opportunities and activities to help students stay engaged.
The EEF granting committee awarded 19 grants to teachers, many requesting materials and equipment in response to needs during Covid-19 remote learning. These grant awards include a $6,700 grant that will provide social emotional learning materials to every classroom at Tonda Elementary. Discover Middle School will receive a grant to purchase curriculum that will help students strengthen their executive functioning skills. At high school level, the EEF will provide technology so Black Student Union can initiate a tutoring program allowing students in the club to virtually connect and tutor other district middle and high school students.
Additional grants included funds for district media centers to purchase culturally diverse books and books that will better support English Language Learners.
The EEF has awarded over $623,000 in classroom grants since it's incorporation in 1985. This is only made possible thanks to the generous Plymouth and Canton communities including event sponsors, individual donors, and community partners. The EEF is grateful to Community Financial Credit Union who donated $10,000 of their Community Shares Program to support classroom grants. Delta Kappa Gamma also generously donated $1,000 to sponsor a grant request.
