Currituck Education Foundation awards mini grants

A virtual meeting of the Currituck Education Foundation in February, five projects supporting Currituck County Schools were awarded mini-grant funding.

Brandy Boyd of Currituck County High School received a grant to “Help Build a Reading  Library for Adaptive/Life Skills students.” This funding will grow the reading library and purchase games used to support vocabulary development and information recall for adaptive/life skills students. This mini-grant was sponsored by Allison Nekervis/Currituck Area Holdings, LLC.

Erica Phillips of Central Elementary School was awarded a grant for “Pre-Math Skills for Kindergarten Readiness.” This project is designed to enhance pre-k students’ exposure to pre-math activities in a fun and engaging way. Funding will purchase various manipulatives to help build math skills at an early age.

Jennifer Robinson of Moyock Middle School’s “Let’s Get Sewing” project was also awarded. Funds will purchase one sewing machine for classroom project use in the PE elective focused on resourcefulness, creativity and problem solving.

Jill Turner of Central Elementary School was awarded a grant for the “Clean Water and Sanitation: a Global Concern” project. In this program, students will explore a variety of methods of cleaning water, including filtering and evaporation and condensation. Funds will purchase water testing kits and products to conduct and expand various related experiments.

Helen Taylor of Moyock Elementary School received a grant for “Sensory Kits for Kids.” Sensory kits, designed to help students cope with emotions and better handle stress and anxiety, will be created to be placed in each MES teacher’s emergency bag.

The Currituck Education Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization that exists to support public education in Currituck County. For more information on how to be involved or to make a donation, visit CurrituckEducationFoundation.org.
