LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Local classrooms and school projects are honored today for their efforts to improve education in our area.
The La Crosse Public Education Foundation honored the more than 70 grant recipients from this year. The LPEF's mission is to enhance learning opportunities for students in La Crosse.
The executive director of the foundation says every dollar awarded through the annual grants can make a world of difference.
"Even a 250-dollar grant, the teacher is just thrilled to be able to get that extra help to be able to take care of needs in their classroom, whether it's just buying basic supplies or whether it's really providing that enriching experience that students are looking for,” said La Crosse Public Education Foundation Executive Director David Stoeffler.
About $55,000 was awarded through the LPEF grants this year.
