F.A.S.T. reading program ($250,000)
On March 31, 2008 GPFPE President Lorna Utley, announced the $100,000 F.A.S.T. Reading Challenge. A generous lead gift of $50,000 had been provided to the GPFPE by the John and Marlene Boll Foundation which spurred the Foundation to announce a matching campaign to raise $100,000 to support the district’s desire to expand implementation of the F.A.S.T. Reading System beyond the elementary reading specialists to kindergarten, first grade and secondary language arts and reading support classrooms throughout the district. On June 23, Lorna returned to present our first installment of $75,000. These funds enabled over 50 teachers to be trained in FAST over the summer and classroom materials to be ordered.
Music in Mathematics ($4,309)
This program for all kindergarten through fourth grade classes helps students master math skills while taking advantage of classroom transition times. Students sing a variety of songs to master basic math skills as they travel from class to class.
