The Shelter Island Educational Foundation’s Annual Grant Celebration took place last November at the Shelter Island Public Library. Janine Mahoney acted as emcee, introducing the students, parents and teachers who spoke about their adventures.
In the 2015/16 school year, SIEF funded a trip to the National Parks in the American Southwest; a MacBook for the school newspaper, The Inlet; a student’s Extreme Military Camp; the 7th grade Schooner Trip; Broadway 101; the DECA Club trip to the New York Stock Exchange; the 2Rs4Fun writing program at the Library; The Living History oral/video history project at the Shelter Island Historical Society and many other programs. Many grateful SIEF grant recipients came to the annual meeting to tell us about their adventures.
Join us this coming November to discover how SIEF helps Shelter Island students explore both here on our small Island and beyond our shores.
Here are some photos from the November 2016 annual meeting.
