Grants are available to local schools
BRISTOL — The Tari Shattuck Education Foundation (TSEF) recently provided $3,300 in grants for seven projects taking place in Mt. Abraham Unified School District (MAUSD) elementary schools. The grants are meant to support innovative educational opportunities developed by local teachers.
As part of its sponsorship of excellence in teaching and learning, this year, TSEF is granting up to $1,500 to each of the five MAUSD elementary schools for these opportunities.
Grants funded so far this year include:
- Bristol Elementary School’s purchase of garden and trail maintenance tools, and tree hammocks to guide the BES children in their stewardship of outdoor spaces.
- The Lincoln Community School’s purchase of history, multi-cultural, and early reader books, as well as to support a school-wide study of the Harlem Renaissance.
- Robinson Elementary School’s purchase of yoga mats and materials to assist its students in learning and using Emotion Regulation skills.
For any of a school’s remaining TSEF grant monies, MAUSD Elementary School teachers may apply for TSEF grants until March 1.
TSEF has also awarded Mt. Abraham Class of ’21 graduates Emily Crowe and Madi Shepard $1,000 scholarships to support their studies in education. Crowe attends Kentucky State University and plans to study Middle Level Education. Shepard attends Bryn Mawr College and plans to major in Education.
