Education foundation awards $17,000 in grants

During the past few months The Cedar Springs Education Foundation has been finalizing plans to donate over $17,000 to the Cedar Springs Public Schools, in the form of five grants for the 2010-2011 school year. These grants were awarded to five schools at the end of the school year breakfast held last week. In all, the awards total $17,755.96 and will be distributed as follows:

Cedar Trails Elementary: $3,800 for three Elmo document cameras and projectors.

Beach Elementary: $2255.96 for two document cameras and multimedia projectors.

Cedar View Elementary: $2,700 for Informational Text  (Weekly Readers & Time Magazine for Kids).

CS Middle School: $3,000 for Leveled Library Books for the Readers’ Workshop.

CS High School: $6,000 for Freshman Academy Support Materials for a project-based learning academy for incoming Freshman students.

These monetary awards represent the on-going work of the Foundations’ Board of Directors and the commitment of the local community. The Foundation maintains its mission that all funds it receives be given directly to the CS Public Schools for use by students. Only a very small percentage of donations is used for administrative functions.
The Education Foundation is a locally-run, non profit overseen by a board of directors drawn from members of this community. All donations are tax deductible. Bill Tucker, the board President welcomes any questions or comments and can be reached at 696-0385.
