Funds projects for Garrison students
The Garrison Children’s Education Fund, which supports the Garrison School, has awarded nine grants worth $21,760.
The money will pay for more than 1,500 library books for the middle school, a New York Historical Immigration Experience field trip for the eighth grade, a Challenger Mission to Mars simulation for the sixth grade, an eagle program at Constitution Marsh for the fourth grade, a percussion ensemble for grades 4 to 8, a MAD Science afterschool program for grades 1 to 5, an expansion of the Makerspace for grades 3 to 8, recess equipment for grades K and 1, and a classroom libraries project for the middle school.
In addition, GCEF funded a playground at the school that is scheduled to be installed this month adjacent to the outdoor pavilion. See gcef.net.
