LEAF Receives Two New Grants

Good News: Yesterday (05/16/2019), we were informed that we will receive two separate grants in support of LEAF efforts:

1.  $21,000 from the Richard Schulze Foundation (Best Buy) in support of the PAKRAT Program. This will allow us to continue to expand the PAKRAT library in our 9 elementary and preschool buildings as well as the summer Roll & Read Bus Program.

2.  $22.350 for a new program called “PAKCAT” (Partners And Kids Counting Alot Together), which will allow us to provide math concept development materials for preschool students in District 742. These materials will be included on the Summer Roll & Read Bus in the summer of 2020.

Thanks to Sara Martini (PAKRAT) and Melissa Hanzek-Brill (PAKCAT) for their expert help in submitting the grant applications!
