2018-2019 school year grants
Monroe High School science students conduct tasty laboratory experiments
"Yes we have had a very active year with your grant funds.
These experiences would not have been possible without your support. Thank you very much. :)"
— Mrs. Martinson and the science students
Cheldelin Middle School: 3D Zorax printer filament and parts
"The Cheldelin Middle School STEAM program greatly appreciates your generous funding donation of $300 to help purchase additional filament and spare parts for the Zorax 3D printers in my classroom!
Thank you for your generous contribution that helps keep the STEAM program printing! I look forward to continue working together in the future!"
— Cheldelin STEAM instructors and students
Santiam Christian School: new cutting head for DeWalt planer
"Thank you so much for the grant with out which I could not have made this improvement to my wood shop program.
With the grant I was able to upgrade the cutter head in the Dewalt planer. The new cutter head makes projects easier to finish due to it's smooth cut. Many of the students noticed how much easier their projects were to sand because of the new cutter head.
Another significant difference is the noise. Based on research, the dB noise measurement drops from 102dB down to 90dB. That is a huge difference in a small shop."
— Marc Powell, Santiam Christian School wood shop teacher
Eddyville Charter School: fiction and non-fiction books
"I used the education grant funds to get all kinds of new books for my classroom. The books are used in small reading groups, so I got 7 of each book. I mostly got non fiction books, because that was what my class was lacking the most, but I also got some fiction books too.
We are currently using books purchased through the grant in every one of my groups! The students really like the variety and new options that are more at their reading ability!"
— Matt Bilder, Eddyville Charter School
Lacomb School: yoga balls, calculators, headphones, electric pencil sharpener
