Jeremiah Gray Elementary School
Helping Hand Grant
“I just wanted to thank PTEF again for funding my grant. With it, I was able to purchase Colors of the World art supplies and a book featuring a person of color for every classroom! Witnessing my own students joy when they’re able to select the correct skin colors when drawing themselves and their classmates has been very rewarding.
One teacher who received the book, Areli has a Dream, shared that she had an emotional and impactful experience while reading it aloud to her class since the character’s story of coming to America closely mirrored that of her and her family.
Thank you again for making these experiences possible for the students and staff of JGE!”
