CCEF was thrilled to receive a generous $20,000 grant from the Culver City Rotary Community Foundation (CCRCF) to fund their CCUSD Teacher Grants program which supports a wide range of classroom projects. On April 25, Rotarians Jane Leonard, Carmela Raack, Lyn Caron, and Lori Segal, and CCEF Executive Director Wendy Hamill distributed award checks and in-person congratulations to the awardees. CCUSD educators submitted their grant requests to fund classroom tools and materials, books, supplemental curriculum materials, technology accessories, flexible seating, and more.

Sara Jones, who currently teaches emerging math learners at Linwood E. Howe Elementary School is using her grant funds to purchase engaging curriculum “to help her students understand foundational math concepts while having fun.” She, and many other awardees, have shared their gratitude to CCRCF and CCEF for helping to make their projects come to life!

Our deep gratitude to our friends at CCRCF who consistently step up to support Culver City schools.
