Bryson Elementary School received an Education Foundation surprise grant reveal, Monday! Wow! Over $10,000 awarded to educators, benefited by the Because We Care Campaign of 2016! All made possible by the generosity of EMS staff.
The grants awarded were designed to increase technology for Kindergarten students. A second grant is merging music and physical fitness through drumfit, a program with in our Physical Education professionals. We also granted iPads for students designed to augment the ability to learn. Textbooks a child will love to open. If you can't beat 'em join 'em and create a way to relate learning with their interest for game and apps. Two teachers shared their grant writing talent and have been awarded iPads in each of their classrooms providing a larger impact.
In 2016 1,400 employees donated to this campaign designed to encourage and empower by giving breath to each other's unique and innovative ideas. This is truly a donation for the love of education.
