The 2018 Spring Grant Cycle has come to a close. We received 26 grant requests from 25 educators throughout FTCSC! These requests included a variety of items from vocal development to books for diverse readers to materials for social and emotional learning.
The review process was challenging for the F*TEF Grant Committee, as every request was well-written and meaningful. We are proud to report 25 or the 26 grant requests received full or partial funding, nearly $10,000.00!
Mrs. Lisa Laker received the Rosalie Hawthorne Grant of Distinction for her “Wade the Water” – Frederick Douglass and the Underground Railroad request.
Mrs. Laker will use the grant funding to visit the Frederick Douglass’ Home and gravesite at Mt. Hope Cemetery, along with Harriet Tubman and Harriet Jacobs sites and 25 Underground Railroad sites in New York.
Mrs. Laker will create a virtual tour to share with FCHS students.
We received the largest number of grant applications from Acton Elementary educators. Great job, Tigers!
