We Strengthen Public Education
Since 1986, the North East Educational Foundation has supported North East ISD by raising funds for the District’s most innovative initiatives – impacting thousands of students each and every day. Innovative projects funded include studio equipment for campus news and podcasts, virtual-augmented reality experiences and STEAM labs that enrich all areas of education. Together, we can continue to support educational excellence and maximize student success.
At Larkspur Elementary, Principal Cody Miller received a $15,000 NEEF Innovative Grant to create a musical playground. The grant will fund percussion instruments to allow students the opportunity to play and experiment with music.
“Music is another language and playing music has direct cognitive and affective benefits. Having musical instruments available in the school park and playground area is very rare. This grant will bring percussion instruments to Larkspur children and provide kids a space to engage in making music,” Miller said.
Students enrolled at STEM Academy at LEE High School will have one of the most advanced technological tools at their fingertips. STEM Academy Director Jennifer Jensen received a whopping $78,000 NEEF Innovative Grant to purchase an Anatomage Table, which will allow students to manipulate and interact with virtual cadavers in their classrooms.
