As part of the Amherst Central Alumni Foundation’s (ACAF) grant program, we help fund various initiatives throughout the school district. One of the initiatives funded was a Classroom Library for second graders at Windermere Boulevard Elementary School.
From teacher Hillary Asbeck-Wade in her grant submission, “Our second grade classroom is composed of special education students, English language learners, and general education students. We hope to make a more accessible library space that will better service the diverse learners in our classroom. We hope to better showcase books with diverse characters at a wider range of reading levels in our new library space. This will allow our students to access appropriate texts with ease, enriching their reading experience.”
The ACAF will periodically receive thank yous for our grants. Ms. Asbeck-Wade sent is a nice thank you note along with drawings from the students of them reading books. You can view the note and the drawings by her class by clicking here.
Through the generous support of Amherst Alumni, you helped make this happen.
