Frankfort Education Foundation Awards Six Teacher Grants for 2017-2018 School Year

The students in the Community Schools of Frankfort will have some exciting things to look forward to in the coming months, thanks to teachers going above and beyond to apply for a teacher grant to enhance the learning experience in their classrooms.

“Each year I look forward to the unique ideas the teachers request. The focus seems to always center around literacy, and that is true again this year. While the focus is similar, the requests vary so the students will have several different methods to learn from throughout their time in the school system because many of these grants can be used again year after year,” Frankfort Education Foundation President Ali Mullen said.

The grants awarded were:

• My Frankfort High School — Becky Cesare;
• Giving the Gift of Words — Sarah Claton;
• Firing Up Hot Dog Pride Readers — Lesley Miller & Kristen Horrell;
• Who Grew My Soup? Using the School Garden to Become a Citizen Scientist — Amy Smith;
• Whimsical World of Kindergarten Writing — Rebecca Vessels; and
• Digital Reading for Today’s Learners — Krista Perdue.

Updates on how the grants are impacting the classrooms will be available at the end of the year. Congratulations to those awarded. As a reminder applications are due Oct 1st of each year and can be found on the Frankfort Education Foundation website,
