Classroom grant winners were just announced for the Community Foundation of the Hudson Valley. Congrats to Mrs. J (Grade K) and Mrs. N (Grade 1) two creative teachers that were awarded over $2500.00.

Thank you to the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley for being a great source of support for teachers to obtain high quality classroom resources.  I was so pleased to work with these 2 dedicated teachers to help them write grants for materials for their classrooms. The grants provide STEAM and language arts activities for over 200 students. Their creativity and dedication to their students is evident in their classrooms every day. Thank You Teachers!  Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

Isn’t education ALL about reaching the kids?
