Friends of Hampden #55 solicited small grant applications, for a maximum of $500 each, from teachers at Hampden Elementary/Middle School in February. We are happy to report that we have evaluated the applications and will be distributing nearly $2000 across six projects including:
- Creating a classroom garden (Kindergarten)
- New classroom supplies including clip boards, headphones, and chairs
- Interactive textbooks for Special Education students and English language learner
- VEX Robotix kits for learning engineering design processes
Thank you to all the teachers who submitted applications this year! And thanks to all the parents whose donations make these projects possible!
