NEF Awards $8300 in School Grants

This year has proven to be a bit challenging when it comes to well…everything. Due to the COVID-19 shutdown, NEF events, like everything else, were put on hold. As the summer went on, we realized that the school year would look a lot different than in the past, and with the introduction of remote learning in the spring, it was likely the teachers and school administration would require new tools and programs that the school budget was not able to support. In August, NEF decided to run a grant cycle so that the district could apply for grants with the focus on remote learning. The grant cycle moved faster than is typical and NEF was not surprised to receive a good number of applications. Though there was limited funding this year, NEF was able to support quite a few of the grants. For a full list of the grants supported, click here.

Welcome Back Pinwheels now on sale!

Help us say “Welcome Back!” to our amazing students and staff with a display of colorful pinwheels for the front of each Northborough school! Not only are the pinwheels a wonderful way to show that we are “Northborough Strong” — but each pinwheel represents a donation that will directly fund a request from a teacher or administrator in our district. NEF has received a number of requests in the past month to support online and hybrid learning initiatives. With your support, we can continue to fund programs that will help the teachers and students navigate this new landscape.
