20th ANNIVERSARY GRANT
To celebrate our 20th Anniversary, a one-time commemorative grant of $20,000 was created to complement our fall and spring grants cycles.
We are thrilled to announce the winner of this grant, “For the Love of Libraries.” This grant will provide much needed updates to the book collections at the four elementary school libraries with an emphasis on nonfiction materials. Presently, the average publication date for material in Glover and Tucker is 1990 and in the Collicot-Cunningham collection is 1992. For “The Love of Libraries” grant will provide 1, 124 newly published quality titles for circulation, which will allow 2,105 students access to wider reading, motivate learners, and support students as they develop independent information literacy skills.
Congratulations to School Librarian, Lori Henry, for writing and applying for the grant. She is looking forward to these new books to be stocked in the library very soon.
THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR COMMUNITY SPONSORS & DONORS who help to make these grants possible and enhance all 6 Milton Public Schools.
SPRING Grant 2017 Cycle:
Thanks to your support the MFE was able to award more than $20,000 by funding 19 grant proposals.
For those curious about how the committee arrives at its recommendations, the most important factor in determining a proposal’s eligibility for funding is the quality of the idea and its benefit to student learning. This is at the core of the MFE’s mission, and we love to see student-centered proposals. In addition, applications must demonstrate creativity and/or innovation in education, clearly state the objectives of the proposal, and discuss the method of assessing the impact of the grant.
Here is a sampling of this spring’s awards:
- Cozy Book Corner
- Movement for Learning – “learniture” stools for students aided by flexible seating
- Materials to support the Outdoor Garden
- “Edison Robots” – programmable robot technology for robotics classroom
- Audio/visual equipment for the media lab
Thank you for your continued support of the MFE’s Grant program through the Annual Appeal!
Thanks to your support the MFE was able to award more than $18,000 by funding 18 grant proposals.
