The ISD 423 Foundation proudly awarded the following grants during Homecoming on September 26, 2014.
$500 to the Summer Reading Program. Funds will be used to purchase independent reading books for up to 50 elementary students next summer.
$943.94 to help first grade teachers implement a guided math program that will allow more students to be served in enriched math and in smaller group settings.
$720 to the Cultivating Lifelong Reading Habits program that will provide professional development for teachers and will also be used to support and promote a “30 Book Reading Challenge” for our current 4th grade students.
$275 to the Reading Buddies program. This program between 6th grade and 1st grade students is a reading partnership that builds bonds between students as they share a common learning experience and builds skilled, confident readers.
The ISD 423 Foundation board would like to express their sincere gratitude to those that have contributed to the endowment fund, making these grants possible. If you have not given to the endowment fund in the past, please consider making a contribution, so next year, we will be able to do that much more for the children of our community.
