Daniel Webster 
Webster Committee for Racial Equity (WCRE) Classroom Book & WEB Programs

All teachers at Webster Elementary received a book to engage students on issues of race and bias, and to deepen the school community's collective awareness of how these issues impact us. Additionally, parents, teachers and administrators attended an anti-racism workshop lead by expert Shanelle Henry.

Columbus Elementary School
Newly created “calming boxes” will be placed in the school.

This grant addresses the psycho-social needs of young students as they face more and more traumas, difficult situations, lockdowns, etc. Calming boxes will be a place kids can congregate and work through social and emotional issues, which enhances their abilities to regulate and cope. Michael Galland, principal, noted these boxes as a big part of the school’s initiative to focus on social and emotional learning and resilience.

Applications for the next funding cycle will be available Fall 2021 – stay tuned!
