$2,000 ‘COVID Narrative’ Grant Awarded to Bernshausen Elementary

$2,000 ‘COVID Narrative’ Grant Awarded to Bernshausen Elementary

The Klein ISD Education Foundation, community members, and Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown masked-up and climbed aboard the Celebration Express on December 10 and delivered large checks to grant recipients across the district. 

The Klein ISD Education Foundation accepts grant applications twice a year to encourage, facilitate, and recognize creative projects that lead to academic achievement for our Klein ISD students. 

Bernshausen Elementary will use its $1,880 grant sponsored by HCA Houston Healthcare Northwest to make a difference in the classroom. 

COVID has created an unprecedented time in history, and students need to share their stories. As a means of providing emotional, physical, and academic support, students will be encouraged to write and illustrate their individual narratives, which will be published in a hardbound book. 

The program will culminate with an “Author’s Night,” at which students will present their published works to their peers, parents, and friends. By providing an outlet for students to share their unique COVID experiences, the program strives to help resolve fears, initiate healing, and create a positive memory, all while creating a record for future generations.

“From the entire Klein ISD Education Foundation Board, we want to thank all of the teachers of Klein ISD for their unwavering support of their students, the children of our awesome families throughout the District. Keep those Grant applications coming,” Foundation President Bill Lakin said.

We are so grateful and proud to live and work in a district with a resource like the Klein ISD Education Foundation that supports our educators, who are continually challenging the norm and disrupting the status quo. 

This fall, the Celebration Express delivered grants totaling $90,090 that will bring education to life for our learners. From a research and observation garden to WT2 translator earbuds, our Fall 2020 grant recipients are innovative, engaging, and inspirational.

Thank you so much to all our grant sponsors who made all this possible. Your giving contribution will help further the educational experience of every Klein ISD student.
