In February, Friends of Hampden #55 (FOH) solicited small grant applications—a maximum of $500 each—from teachers at Hampden Elementary/Middle School (HEMS). We are thrilled to report that we have awarded nearly $2,000 across six projects for this award period. Funded projects include:
- A classroom garden
- New classroom supplies such as clip boards, headphones, and chairs (multiple awards)
- Interactive textbooks for Special Education students and English language learners
- VEX Robotix kits for learning engineering design processes
Thank you to all the teachers who submitted applications this year. And many thanksto all FOH donors who make these projects possible and enhance our students’ learning experiences.
If you would like to support these types of projects at HEMS, please consider making a donation today!
