The foundation announced that three grants were awarded to the following schools from the Principals’ Fund for Student Needs:
Montlieu Academy of Technology received a grant to attend a Summer Reading Institute at High Point University. The Institute helps rising third graders at Montlieu maintain the gains that were made during the school year while in second grade. The Summer Reading Institute starts June 22 and will engage students with reading and writing activities run by certified elementary school teachers.
Oak View Elementary School received a grant to provide funding for fifth graders who need financial assistance to join their class on their traditional field trip to Washington, D la viagra se vende sin receta.C. While in Washington, the students had access to hands-on learning that incorporated a significant amount of social studies standards for North Carolina.
Penn-Griffin School for the Arts received a grant to underwrite the cost of a trip for 60 middle school boys who visited NC A&T as part of a mentoring program. The program encourages students to consider attending college by being exposed to the schools, students and facilities. Students will create goals after the trip to work toward high academic achievement and, ultimately, apply and qualify for college.
“The High Point Community Foundation’s support through the years has not only afforded our students opportunities to participate in extended enrichment activities outside of school, it has also facilitated a tremendous school-community partnership that continues to support the success of our staff and students”, said Shelley Nixon-Green, principal, Penn Griffin School for the Arts. “The recent grant provided by the High Point Community Foundation will support a college tour for our at-risk male students. This tour is a part of a school-based program aimed at reducing academic and social barriers often experienced by male students. Without the funding, our students would not be able to participate.”
