October 25, 2018, San Jose, CA:  Anderson and Latimer Elementary schools have been awarded Innovation Grants through the Moreland Education Foundation (MEF) Small Grants Program.  MEF awarded approximately $3,000 in grant money to the two schools who applied and presented their ideas for three different grants at the October MEF Board Meeting.


The following schools received grants for programs or materials that go beyond the school budget.  

School

Project

Amount

Anderson

Purchase of the Second Step social-emotional curriculum for 1st - 5th grade students.  Second Step Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) gives students the tools to excel in and out of the classroom. Research from the implementation of the program shows schoolwide improvement and sees even the most challenging students making progress in emotion management, situational awareness, and academic achievement.

$2155

Anderson

Family-friendly, carnival-style games to be used at Anderson Family event, such as the Anderson Fall Festival.  These family evening events foster a sense of community and inclusion among students, teachers, parents, and other participants.  By increasing the quantity and quality of these games, Anderson hopes to encourage more participation from students and the community.

$500

Latimer

Initial implementation of Latimer Colorguard for middle school students.  This grant will purchase necessary equipment to teach Colorguard skills. The goal of the Colorguard program is to enrich visual and performing arts opportunities, teach students the importance of teamwork, and to create a bridge between Latimer Middle School and the local high schools for students participating in the program.  

$400


The MEF Innovation Grants program supports innovative and creative approaches to education in all areas of learning and student enrichment, including Project Based Learning, staff development, school climate enrichment, and parent education.  The goal for the MEF small grants program is to identify programs that once established successfully can be sustained and modeled by others in the Moreland School District.
