Cape Henlopen Education Foundation Winter Jam Event
There’s a lot more that goes in a school day than just class and homework.
The Educational Foundation’s mission is to provide students with the tools they need to be successful at school and in life. Jeff also talks about funds for teachers with the Teachers Excellence Grant Program, which they can use to purchase math and science games, reading materials and software that enrich the curriculum.
Jeff says jobs in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) field are going to be the jobs of the future so they are preparing their students now. There are different programs in the elementary school levels such as robotics, all the way up to the high school level where they are building mobile apps.
For more information on the programs, visit the Educational Foundation website.
There are students in the Cape Henlopen School District who are in need. Jeff talks about a College Tour Program where they help get limited income students to visit colleges they are interested in.
“In many cases, they are the first members of their family to graduate from college,” Jeff says.
The community has an opportunity to help out these students. Their annual fundraiser, Winter Jam, is Friday, Jan. 19, from 7 pm-11 pm at the Rusty Rudder.
In addition to learning about the Cape Henlopen Education Foundation and their upcoming Winter Jam event, we’re also going to learn about some of the food that will be featured at Winter Jam. Chef Jen Bradour from Plate Catering is in the kitchen today to make Winter Jam Stuffed Cucumbers.
