How They'll Use the Award

Cleveland has great need to fill various supply gaps, from classroom basics to library books, and a bulletin board. If we received the grant, we hope to equip teachers with a more adequate supply of basics (paper, Kleenex, glue, pencils, etc.) as well as the means to provide for unique requests for special projects. School-wide, we have a very ethnically and socio-economically diverse population. We need more infrastructure to display student work and share information about what is happening on campus. We cannot just rely on email for these. A central, physical display case and information board where families can get information in multiple languages is greatly needed.
