Our past grant winners!
1st-5th grade Self Contained Special Education teacher, Checotah, OK.
Thank you for funding our classroom! The grant money was such a godsend for our kiddos in these unprecedented times. We were able to purchase light filters, a set of markerboards, markers, erasers, coats, classroom supplies, cleanex, and some snacks for our kiddos. The light filters have been a total game changer! The classroom is very calm and serene with the reduced noise and flickering of the harsh fluorescent lighting. Staff and students both have less headaches. The students are able to focus on their assignments without the distraction of the lighting. We appreciate it so much!
Many of my students live in temporary homeless shelters. A full 100% of our students are entitled to free breakfast and lunch. Although my students face many challenges at home and in the community, my students are wonderful, inquisitive, and enthusiastic learners.
I just wanted to let you know how elated my students were to discover that we have new books to add to our school library. I have purchased a variety of e-books for pre-k – middle school so that I can conduct remote read aloud using Loom (screen-casting tool).
