Our Big Check Day Is So Much Fun! So We Added Another One!

On Thursday, thanks to our donors, the East Grand Rapids Schools Foundation presented big checks to teachers and staff members who’d applied for grants and mini grants over the summer. 

The grants included iPads for Speech and Math, a synthesizer for Music, a field trip for Spanish, an author visit, a wide format printer, and the cost of transporting musical instruments down to Disney World and Universal Studios for the high school Music performances there in November. 

More grants will be awarded later this fall. Thank you, Foundation donors, for making all these materials and opportunities available to our students!
