In the spring of 2015 we sponsored our first mini-grant for 5th grade teachers at Lumberg Elementary School which allowed most of the 5th grade students to build a rocket and launch it. We were able to watch the excitement as the students saw their rocket shoot into the skies above Edgewater!
This school year we want to provide the funds for more teachers in the Jefferson Area to create innovative classroom projects for their students. The goal of these grants is to provide teachers with extra resources to inspire and educate students in the Jefferson Area. Specifically, we are looking for projects that will correlate to the following pathway goals:
- 3rd Grade Literacy: Students will read and write at grade level by the end of 3rd grade
- 5th Grade Math: Students will demonstrate grade level math skills by the end of 5th grade
- 8th Grade Math: Students will demonstrate grade level math skills by the end of 8th grade
- College and Career Readiness: Students will graduate high school confident and competent for college or career
Grants of up to $300 can be used for classroom supplies but not for additional pay, stipends or salaries. Grants are available for teachers at Edgewater, Lumberg, Molholm and Jefferson Jr/Sr High.
Applications must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to Edgewater Collective, 5220 W. 25th Avenue, Edgewater, CO 80214 by September 26, 2016.
