On Thursday, February 8th, for the eighth year in a row, the Fort LeBoeuf Foundation awarded grants to teachers and staff members to enhance the educational opportunities of our students.  This year’s grants added up to $9222, making the total the Foundation has given over $50,000.  At Waterford Elementary Ms. Ali Coletta received ten 3-D printer pens so students can create pieces related to the stories they read. Mrs. Stacy Bukoski was awarded two grants, a document camera for her second grade classroom and one for middle and high school students for materials for a robotics team.  Ms. Hannah Kulic requested Nooks for fourth and fifth graders; the struggling students can work without other students knowing what level books they are reading.  Mrs. Cindy Zylak and Ms. Bernadette Walters received funds to help put on the Waterford Elementary School play, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.  At Robison Elementary Mrs. Casey Jack was given money to purchase yoga mats for a program to help students learn to alleviate stress and anxiety during testing.  Robison’s principal, Mrs. Jennifer Hopkins has a program called Be a Bison Everywhere which will help students with conflict resolution, improved attendance, and creating an overall safer and more positive school atmosphere. The elementary school librarian, Mrs. Marian Gregg, is starting a makerspace at Robison where students will be able to experiment, create, and find solutions to problems.  Middle school teacher Mrs. Erin Strimel needed bins for a vocational program for autistic students to practice skills to help them both inside and outside of the classroom.  At the high school Mrs. Marcie Campbell was given funds to purchase a video camera for student presentations and multimedia projects in English classes.  The Foundation also once again gave Mrs. Debbie Humphreys money to help sponsor Business Week which happens each year at the high school.  For any questions about the Foundation grants, please contact Dennis Fortin at flbfoundation@gmail.com
