An extraordinary group of teachers descended on the Confluence Technology Center Thursday night to receive classroom grants from the North Central Educational Service District Foundation.

Each of the 41 recipients representing schools from across region applied for funding up to $300 for projects that engage students in four areas: STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), literacy, music and arts and post-secondary education. The amount of creativity in the grant applications was inspiring. Even though the grant amounts were small, they mean a lot to teachers who are struggling with tight budgets but finding ways to develop meaningful opportunities for students.
