Lake Placid Checks totaling $14,000 have gone to eleven foreign language projects at eight Adirondack schools. The February grants come from a new fund at the Adirondack Community Trust (ACT) that gives awards for projects that enrich foreign language instruction. All Adirondack French and Spanish teachers are welcome to apply.
AuSable Valley Central School won four grants for French and Spanish immersion projects: a three-day trip to Canada, a photo story project, and producing a play. Another grant went to Lake George, where the school was transformed into a French village for a weekend—and everyone spoke French only.
Gifts to the fund are welcome and will help increase the amount available for teachers. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit ACT’s website www.generousact.org.
