Elizabeth C-1 teachers receive grants

The Elizabeth Education Foundation awarded Elizabeth C-1 School District teachers with grants totaling nearly $13,000 at the school board meeting Dec. 10.

Teachers from Running Creek Elementary, Singing Hills Elementary, Elizabeth Middle School, Elizabeth High School and Legacy Charter School were beneficiaries of the foundation’s mission to enhance the educational process and opportunities for all students, teachers, employees, parents and community members in the Elizabeth C-1 School District.

Thirty teachers from the district submitted applications to the foundation for equipment and services intended to enhance student learning that promotes 21st century skills and abilities such as critical thinking and reasoning, information literacy, collaboration, self-direction and invention. Students will benefit from enrichment opportunities such as the Challenger Learning Center Mission and Opera Colorado.

Grants were awarded for equipment to be used by students and teachers such as Mimio boards, a xylophone, a classroom amplifier system, a theatrical scrim, an illuminated earth moon and sun orbiter, digital voice recorders and MP3 players.

A districtwide grant proposal submitted by physical education teachers from five schools for an interactive gaming system to enhance the exercise program was also awarded seed money to begin a pilot to determine the merits and success of such an approach to physical fitness.

The Elizabeth Education Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3), also sponsors the annual STARS Banquet that honors Students Taking Accountability and Responsibility Seriously. In addition, the foundation sponsors a scholarship program in conjunction with the Douglas County Educational Foundation and Jones International University whereby teachers in the Elizabeth C-1 School District can earn post-graduate degrees.

Donations and fundraising activities determine the depth and breadth of the foundation’s ability to accomplish its mission. If you are interested in volunteering and/or donating to the foundation or would like more information, visit www.elizabethef.org.
