Reading & writing programs supported by 2013 Friends of Laurelhurst Foundation grant

The Friends of Laurelhurst Foundation has been working in tandem with the PTA to identify areas of need at the school. As a result of this collaboration, the Foundation has issued a $3500 grant to finance the purchase of Reading Room books for kindergarteners and first graders, as well as Writers Workshop curricula for kindergarteners. In addition, a portion of the grant will co-fund Library furniture upgrades to benefit all students.

The mission of the Friends of Laurelhurst Foundation is to establish a $1 Million endowment to enrich the educational experience of children at Laurelhurst Elementary for generations to come. While the Foundation works toward this goal, each year it makes a financial award to meet an area of need and benefit today’s children. The Foundation donors are pleased to support Laurelhurst students’ reading and writing programs with this year’s gift.
