The Saint Louis Park Public Schools & Community Foundation has announced $10,000 in emergency grants. Most of the 41 requests, which maxed out at $250 cover the cost of supplies or equipment to support in-person and distance learning and student social-emotional development during covid.
"We were looking for a way to support students and staff with immediate needs. Our teachers have really risen to the challenge, and these small awards help demonstrate that we appreciate what they are doing to adapt" said Ingrid Culp.
Examples include books for classrooms, e-books for media centers, subscriptions for online resources and materials to help alleviate anxiety. Students of all grades preK-12th grade will benefit from the grants, as well as students with special learning needs.
