Thanks Ed Foundation


I would like to thank and acknowledge the members of the Douglas County Education Foundation and the community members that support them. I recently received a grant from the foundation for the purpose of purchasing materials to enhance the sight word and math fact instruction for first graders at Minden Elementary School. The generosity of this group will allow all first-grade students at Minden Elementary to use technology, learn and practice sight words, improve their reading, and increase their automaticity of basic math facts. As a teacher, it is encouraging and heartening to have the support of such a worthwhile organization.

I thank you for supporting the children and teachers of our community.
