Classroom Excellence Grants
Classroom Excellence Grants are awarded each year to CFCS District staff for projects that improve and enhance the educational experience of the students in the Cedar Falls Community Schools. These projects carry out the Foundation's mission of enhancing excellence in education. Grant applicants base their goals on improved educational experiences for students, strengthening the relationships between school, families and the community, and providing experiences above and beyond typical classroom activities.
Eighteen Classroom Excellence Grants, totaling over $15,000, were awarded in November 2019 for innovative projects in the classroom ranging from 3D printers to disc golf materials. Grants were available to pre-k-12 educators and made possible through donor gifts. Four named grants were awarded this year in memory of Pat Lyman, Robert L. Savereide, Amy Denholm and Jim & Karen Bolger.
