Look what came in the mail today!
The Tari Shattuck Education Foundation is a local organization started in memory of a beloved teacher who passed away at age 41 after several years battling leukemia. Among its activities, the foundation awards grants to the schools in our five town community twice a year. Our school and my classroom has benefited from generous grants countless times in the past.
I wrote a grant requesting funds for several items my class kitchen currently lacks including:
- a two burner stove
- dish towels
- utensils (spatulas, whisk, measuring spoons)
- a digital timer
- a hand powered food chopper (why not put all that kid-energy to good use and avoid the risk of burning out my personal food processor?)
The generous TSEF board granted my full request, which means in addition to now being able to purchase all of the items listed above, I also have $150 to put toward the actual food we'll be cooking. This grant is making possible something I have already committed to, and for that I am so very thankful.
