The North Hollywood North East Neighborhood Council is stepping up to support our students with funding for two Neighborhood Purpose Grants. We are proud to support the Sun Valley Magnet School Leadership Program which will allow students to participate in an intensive all day training session to help them work as a team, overcome fears, set goals and improve self confidence and communication skills. This grant is for $2,000.
We are also supporting students at Strathern Elementary with a grant to send 125 kindergartners to Underwood Family Farms May 2020. They will have the opportunity to pick fruits and veggies and take in a “Farmer to Classroom” presentation about nutrition, and how food gets from the farm to the table. Bringing home what they have picked if they haven’t already eaten it all, makes this a memorable field trip. This grant is for $1,500.
Both grants were approved at our November 13, 2019 meeting.
