Sky Circus Field Trip
The Elkhorn Area School District Education Foundation (EASDEF) awarded its first grant to West Side and Jackson Elementary schools in early February. The grant covered transportation costs for students to attend the Sky Circus indoor kite performance at EAHS on Friday, February 14, 2020.
The performance featured some of the greatest kite performers in the world. With lessons of inclusion and emotional wellness and a powerful anti-bullying message, attending the circus with other schools in the district was a memorable shared experience for students.
Elkhorn Community Meal Program
COVID-19 flipped the education world upside down. As the school district launched a federally-funded program to provide free meals to all children 18 and under in our community, there was an identified need to do the same for adults and seniors.
The Foundation decided to focus its efforts on working with the community to provide the funds needed to support an adult meal program. The school district provided 48,068 to adults and seniors in our community.
