Cavendish Community Fund Announces Educational Grant Awards

The Cavendish Community Fund has announced the award of four educational and cultural grants for projects in Cavendish.

CCF will again help support the Cavendish Community Theater's summer production. The theater has produced several plays over the past few years, all of which played to packed houses, and CCF is proud to be a major sponsor again in 2010.

Two projects were funded to benefit children who attend Cavendish Town Elementary School. A trio of teachers has developed curriculum for fourth, fifth and sixth graders that takes advantage of interactive learning using advanced technology at the school. CCF funded additional technology to advance these learning opportunities. In the other project, a local citizen will create a class this year to teach photography to Cavendish school children.

Finally, CCF has funded materials specific to a multicultural educational program at Stepping Stones Preschool.

The Fund will announce the deadline for the next round of grant applications sometime early next year.
