The Herren Project (Spring 2023)
Made possible through the EITC contribution of APR Supply Co., this grant will bring former professional basketball and substance-use prevention advocate Chris Herren to speak to 7th, 8th, and 9th graders about his personal experience with substance abuse and overcoming addiction. Designed by clinicians and school counselors to empower students to live substance-free lives, this program also provides support for the development of peer networks within schools that encourage wellness and focus on development of coping and leadership skills.
Middle School Sensory Space (Spring 2023)
This grant will create a pop-up sensory space for middle school students. The experience will be launched as part of the 8th grade end-of-year celebration and subsequently available for ongoing use during activities and events and incorporated into regular school day use. The grant will fund elements of a space including manipulatives and tactile experiences that reduce stress and anxiety and improve focus and productivity to support the evolving needs and emotions of middle school students.
Building Positivity (Fall 2021)
Landis Run Intermediate School staff had previously worked together to add wall decals featuring positive messages in restrooms throughout the building. As the original installations have not held up to wear-and-tear, this grant allows staff to purchase more durable alternatives and continue their commitment to positive messages and to the social-emotional well-being of students in all environments throughout the building.
Note that many grants have outcomes in multiple impact areas.
