Local teachers earn classroom grants
Submitted by Community Foundation of NCW

The Community Foundation of NCW recently visited schools across North Central Washington delivering Classrooms Can! grant awards to teachers in their classrooms. Staff, board members and selection committee volunteers surprised teachers in their classrooms with their award certificates.
Classrooms Can! is part of the foundation's Community Grants Program that provides teachers with a $1,000 grant for innovative and exciting classroom projects that engage the hard to reach learner. More than 130 applications were received and 47 were funded. Awards were distributed in five areas: Arts Education, Literacy, Math and Science, Technology and Wellness. Teachers in K-12 public schools were able to apply for grants in one or more categories, with up to 10 projects to be funded in each category.
Each area had a selection committee comprised of volunteers in the community with expertise and experience in one of the five areas and one student. Projects will be implemented in the 2013-2014 academic year.
Manson High School - Ms. Jennifer Koth, Classrooms Can Read College Bound Novel.
Entiat Elementary School - Ms. Floy Kay Arras, Classrooms Can Move.
Entiat Elementary School - Dana Cada, Classrooms Can Inspire Healthy Living.
Entiat Junior/Senior High - Mr. Dan Durr, Classrooms Can Create Engineers.
Manson High School - Mr. Erik Helleson, Classrooms Can Solve Crimes Using DNA.
In partnership with the United Way of Chelan-Douglas Counties, Classrooms Can! grants are funded for four years (through 2016) through a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
