At its Nov. 25th meeting the Norwich Public Schools Education Foundation voted to award $6,378 in grants to Norwich Public Schools classrooms for the Fall 2019 Grant cycle. The Foundation awards grants in support of student achievement twice yearly.
This cycle of grants includes funds for an after-school running club and after-school volleyball club promoting good health and self-esteem. Grants were also awarded for a life skills lab and sensory materials and tools; a sensory break room to assist with sensory-based intervention; a transition program to teach independent living skills; and purchasing a speaker system for educational videos for large groups of students.
Additionally, the Foundation provided funding to purchase new flutes in support of its long-term commitment to the Norwich Public Schools’ flourishing instrumental music program, which now has over 200 students participating.
The all-volunteer Norwich Public Schools Education Foundation has awarded more than $72,000 in grants to Norwich Public Schools classrooms since the Foundation’s inception in 2011. This is made possible due to the generosity of our community partners and individual donors.
