Our goal is simple:
To help create learning success stories,
one student at a time.
Since we formed in 2014, the Foundation has strived to become a Learning Center helping students fulfill their educational potential needs. We have done this through STEM programs with personalized instruction working hand-in-hand with the students and their classroom teachers for the most efficient learning.
We have promoted a Career Day, covered the expenses of teachers to learn about STEM through professional growth, purchased technology equipment for the Claysburg-Kimmel School District, promoted the Arts through an art show and musical program, supplied money for teachers for Venture grants, sponsored field trips, supported reading competition programs for Bedford County, supported the CK Backpack program, worked with Catalyst Space for a STEM field trip program and worked with the FBLA students on their Veteran's project to name a few.
The Foundation has collaborated with the foundations at all surrounding schools in Blair and Bedford County as well as the Intermediate Unit 8 to further satisfy the growing needs of today's students.
In June, July and August 2017 we held a twelve day STEM and the Arts session in Claysburg with 75 registered students. It was a big success. In 2018 we repeated another 12 day STEM and the Arts session in Claysburg with 80 registered students. Information on it is below.
Our commitments in 2018 for the first 9 months to Claysburg-Kimmel School District now total approximately $170,000 with a major portion of it for "Project Lead the Way" and to fund many of the I-Pads! Claysburg-Kimmel will shortly be one-on-one with I-Pads for each student.
