WGEF completed their first grant review of the year in December. WGEF funded over $14,000 total for 3 innovative grants: ‘Google Expeditions Virtual Field Trips’ presented by Anna Laubscher and Jileen Urbanek for use in both Westwood and Lyndsey, ‘Aquaponics’ (food production, sustainability & population concepts) presented by Mike Sustin for the High School and ’21st Century Classroom’ (modified and adaptable classroom learning options) presented by Angela Wyatt for use at Lyndsey. Over $7,400 is available for additional grants. Deadline for February Grant Submissions is 2/15/2019.
Thanks to generous support from United Gymnastics in Chesterland, WGEF sponsored a Dodgeball/Open Gym night in December at a reduced fee for children 4-15. Light coffee/refreshments were served and information about WGEF was provided. Over 65 children participated.
