Educational grants awarded

The Riverview Educational Foundation (REF) has awarded 14 educational grants to the students and teachers of the Riverview School District. Each grant recipient met the criteria established for enrichment programs that enhance learning opportunities that challenge each student to attain his/her highest potential.
   REF has awarded the grants for 2001 to each school in the district. Stillwater Elementary received grants for their music department and their guided recess program. Carnation Elementary was awarded grants for Phonemic Awareness and Creating Multimedia Presentations programs. Cherry Valley Elementary received grants for their Teacher's Helper program and computer network classroom setup program. Eagle Rock Multi-Age was awarded a grant for their program called "Write Away Writing Curriculum."
   Tolt Middle School will benefit from four grants that will assist in making their programs possible for the yearbook technology upgrade, graphing calculators, Worldwide Story of Energy and Write for Kids.
   Cedarcrest High School received a grant for their Spring Formal for Students with Developmental Disabilities. All Riverview students will benefit from the grants for the Commissioned Band Piece program and Improved Assessment and Interventions program.

   REF awarded over $8,700 to the students and teachers for these enrichment programs.
   These grants were made possible through United Way contributions, direct donations to REF and the second annual Golf Classic fundraiser held last September at Tall Chief. Watch for information in the paper and at all Riverview schools about the third annual Golf Classic coming in September 2001. This is a fun community event and everyone is invited.
