District-Wide Elementary School Grants
The Rockville Centre Education Foundation typically approves between $30,000 - $60,000 worth of grants for each school year.
The grants funded reflect our continuing interest in providing unique opportunities to the children of the school district, particularly in the areas of science, math, and art.
Particularly interesting and innovative among upcoming elementary school awards are programs that are not school-building based but will benefit all children district-wide. For example, Group Vocal Improvisation will sponsor an expert in the art and education of vocal improvisation to teach both teachers and students alike.
