Current Recipients

The Prize Patrol Day is fun for the Directors of MEF, who have worked hard all year raising the majority of money through special events. Before the fun, though, came the painstaking task of deciding which proposals would be funded. Directors serving on The Grant Committee reviewed the proposals “blindly”, without knowledge of who submitted requests. After carefully evaluating all of the submitted proposals and considering which grants have met the criteria, MEF was pleased to announce the following grant award:

Donate with PayPal, PayPal Credit or any major credit card
Ways to Donate
December 2016$2,500
$2500 was awarded to St. Bernard School for a Makerspace program.

Makerspace will allow students to independently explore subjects that interest them without concern for a grade.  Within classes, students can create visual and 3 dimensional projects that will help bring concepts to life.  This innovative and cutting edge program enables learning in a different way. 
Headphones for Chromebooks
December 2016$336
A mini grant of $336.61 was awarded to Mohegan School to purchase 25 headphones and 10 splitters for students to use with Chromebooks.

The purchase will supplement aging and unusable equipment.   Students will use technology in the classroom to supplement core instruction.  Small groups would use the Chromebooks without disrupting the rest of the class.
Reading Milestones
December 2016$2,375
$2,374.90 was awarded to Murphy School to purchase "Reading Milestones" booklets, software and monitoring accessories. 

This program will allow for additional strategies to teach language to special education students.  The materials could be copied and used throughout the district.  The materials provide built-in feedback on student success.
