Kaneland Foundation to contribute $11,000 in grants to teachers

MAPLE PARK – On Sept. 21, 2017, the Kaneland Foundation hosted its 24th annual Golf Outing. Because of this generosity, Kaneland students will benefit through the addition of innovative applications of technology and other necessities for the classroom, according to a news release.

To qualify to receive a grant from the Kaneland Foundation, Kaneland teachers complete grant applications for items they would like to have for their students that are not possible through the annual budget. From these applications, the Kaneland Foundation is honored to fund more than $11,000 in grants to teachers for their students, according to the release.

2017 grant recipients include:

Kaneland Harter Middle School
Jessica Weibler
Pattie Pattermann
Rachel Ramos
Tina Schertzer

Kaneland John Shields Elementary School
Molly Lee

Kaneland Blackberry Creek Elementary School
Kelly DeGaetano
Autumn Gilchrist
Sharlene Momich
Cindy Babich

Kaneland John Stewart Elementary School
Tracy Mazurkiewicz

All Kaneland Schools
Maria Dripps-Paulson, Kaneland Arts Initiative

These staff members have been invited to the school board meeting scheduled for Nov. 13 at Kaneland Harter Middle School, 1601 Esker Drive, Sugar Grove. At that time, they will share with the Kaneland Board of Education information about how the funds will be used. A little later this year, there will be pictures posted of the grant recipients and their students on the Kaneland Foundation web page, according to the release.

The Kaneland Foundation is a nonnprofit organization that has contributed for decades to the educational needs of the students of Kaneland School District 302. The Foundation’s mission is to support academic excellence through innovation, according to the release.

Making lifelong learning a reality, and driving students to become effective, compassionate, visionary leaders of the community would not be possible without the Friends of the Foundation, according to the release. Friends, residents and businesses of the Kaneland School District, are integral to the foundation's success.
