The Foundation understands how difficult this school year has been for our students and educators. That’s why we decided to implement a Classroom Stimulus Grant to help our teachers make learning exciting for the rest of the school year and beyond. This micro-grant awards classroom teachers with $250 to purchase an array of items described in their applications. The Foundation received dozens of applications within a week and a small committee reviewed the applications and selected winners from various campuses. The selected applications were truly innovative in making learning fun. Projects include: a DIY yearbook for the students to reflect back on this year; time-management planners to assist with learning from home; a button-maker to create fun buttons centered around math; and motor skills + sensory items to make classroom learning more hands on.

The following 18 winners were selected:

  • Robert Asher - Edgewood Fine Arts Academy

  • Dorothy Castillo - Henry B. Gonzalez Elementary

  • Cristina Cisneros - Cardenas Early Childhood Center

  • Bianca Contreras - Gus Garcia University School

  • Diahann Crawford - E.T. Wrenn Middle

  • Alberta Duran - Roy Cisneros Elementary

  • Nancy Hernandez - Cardenas Early Childhood Center

  • Christina Hernandez-Rios - Memorial High School

  • Richard Huntoon - Edgewood Fine Arts Academy

  • Clayton Jaskinia - E.T. Wrenn Middle

  • Henry Johnson Jr. - E.T. Wrenn Middle

  • Berachia Oatis - E.T. Wrenn Middle

  • Breanna Ramirez -Cardenas Early Childhood Center

  • Cynthia Ramirez de Lopez - Memorial High School

  • Rene Rodriguez - Edgewood Fine Arts Academy

  • Jennifer Trujillo - Loma Park Elementary

The Foundation hopes these grants will make learning fun for the rest of this school year and encourage students to continue learning over the summer. Teachers will have the opportunity to apply for the Foundation’s Innovative Teacher Grant in Fall 2021. Stay tuned for more details!
