Arlington Education Foundation gives 15 grants totaling $8,800 to classroom teachers
AEFDuring the Arlington Public Schools Board of Directors meeting on Nov. 8, the Arlington Education Foundation (AEF) gave $8,830.51 to teachers in the Arlington School District. Since 2011, AEF has granted nearly $120,000 to classroom teachers in the district as part of their Mini Grant Program.

“These grants fund innovative, imaginative and exciting work in local classrooms,” said AEF Board Member, Kevin Ess. “Teachers are able to purchase new materials for their classrooms they would not ordinarily be able to afford. These materials go directly into the hands of children in our community!”
