APSF awards $50,000 in classroom grants / otorga $50,000 en subvenciones para los salones de clase

Posted on: November 20, 2019

All Grant Recipients

Each year the Albany Public Schools Foundation (APSF) receives classroom grant applications from teachers throughout the 21 schools in the Greater Albany Public School district. By the deadline of October 15th of this year, the Foundation had received a total of 105 grant applications equaling over $94,000 in requests.

On October 29th, the APSF Allocations Committee joined together with other community partners and recommended the funding or partial funding of 84 of these applications for a total of $50,000.  The funded enrichment-based classroom grants, approved by the APSF Board, ranged from electronics to materials for art, reading, music, and physical education.

One of the Foundation’s community partners, Samaritan Diagnostic Imaging Services, jumped at the chance to help Jennifer Bornheimer, a health teacher at West Albany High School, with her request for colored paper. The colored paper helps Mrs. Bornheimer to teach her students about organization. In her 21 years teaching she realizes “that one of the most significant obstacles to a student’s success is the lack of organization.”

Another community partner that stepped up to help was Baldwin General Contracting. The construction company was notified that South Albany High School teacher Matthew West (pictured above) needed funds to help maintain and grow his CTE (Career Technical Education) Manufacturing and Construction classes. They helped fund his request with a match from the Foundation in order to purchase tools and supplies for his programs.

All grant recipients are listed here. To find out how you can support enrichment opportunities for Albany public school students, contact Albany Public Schools Foundation at 541-979-2773 or email info@albanypsf.org.

todos los beneficiarios de la subvención

Cada año, la fundación Albany Public Schools Foundation (APSF por sus siglas en inglés) recibe solicitudes de subvenciones de los maestros para los salones de clase entre todas las 21 escuelas del distrito escolar de Greater Albany. En la fecha límite el 15 de octubre de este año, la fundación recibió un total de 105 solicitudes equivalentes a más de $94,000 en pedidos.

El 29 de octubre, el comité de la fundación APSF, se unió con socios comunitarios y recomendaron el financiamiento o financiamiento parcial de 84 de estas solicitudes para un total de $50,000.  Las subvenciones para los salones de clases financiadas para el enriquecimiento, aprobadas por la Mesa Directiva de la fundación APSF, variaron desde electrónicos hasta materiales para arte, lectura, música y educación física.   

Uno de los socios comunitarios de la fundación, Samaritan Diagnostic Imaging Services (Servicios de diagnóstico por imágenes de Samaritan), aprovechó la oportunidad para ayudar a Jennifer Bornheimer, una maestra de la clase salud en la preparatoria West Albany High School, con su solicitud para papel de colores. El papel de colores ayuda a la Sra. Bornheimer a enseñarles a sus estudiantes sobre la organización. En sus 21 años enseñando, ella se ha dado cuenta “que uno de los obstáculos más significativos del éxito estudiantil es la falta de organización.”

Otro socio comunitario que se ofreció a ayudar, fue la compañía Baldwin General Contracting. La compañía de construcción fue notificada que el maestro Matthew West de la preparatoria South Albany High School (en la foto de arriba), necesitaba fondos para ayudar a mantener y hacer crecer sus clases de manufactura y construcción de CTE (Educación de carreras técnicas). Ellos ayudaron a financiar su pedido con una cantidad equivalente de la fundación para poder comprar herramientas y suministros para estos programas.  

Todos los beneficiarios de la subvención se enumeran aquí. Para informarse de como usted puede apoyar las oportunidades de enriquecimiento para los estudiantes de las escuelas públicas de Albany, contacte a la fundación Albany Public Schools Foundation al 541-979-2773 o por correo electrónico a info@albanypsf.org.

WAHS Annual Food Drive

Posted on: November 7, 2019

Every year West Albany High School holds a food drive to benefit a family in the WAHS community; this year the drive will take place from November 12th to the 27th.

Instead of collecting in 3rd period classes as we have done in the past, this year we’re switching it up and collecting donations by graduating class in the lobby — drop off your donations and help your class win an ice cream celebration!

Please bring non-perishable foods only until the last day (Nov. 27).
