This August, Mrs. Wilk, our Enrichment Coordinator, was the proud recipient of a Meemic Foundation Grant. Created by the Meemic Insurance Company and founded as a nonprofit organization, The Meemic Foundation is dedicated to advancing the future of education, supporting education excellence through funding programs, and other partnership initiatives.
Through a partnership with Scholastic Books, Mrs. Wilk was the recipient of a grant which provided an exclusive opportunity to receive select novels for use in the URS Enrichment Program.
The application process involved teachers writing about the books that had the greatest impact on them as a child and as an educator. Applications were due in June, with winners announced in August. The grant was awarded in October. We would like to congratulate Mrs. Wilk for this accomplishment.
