Klenk Elementary Awarded $12,500 for Legacy Headquarters Grant

Klenk Elementary Awarded $12,500 for Legacy Headquarters Grant

Klenk Elementary received a $12,500 grant today to continue the work of building student leadership and promoting healthy social-emotional development through the use of Klenk’s collaborative space.

During a surprise visit by the Klein ISD Education Foundation Celebration Express, the school was awarded the grant by Foundation directors, community members, and Klein ISD Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown. School staff were overjoyed as dozens of Foundation supporters climbed out of their school bus and delivered large checks to grant recipients. 

The grant, sponsored by Perdue Brandon Fielder Collins and Mott, LLP, will help fund a reimagining of Klenk’s collaborative space led by a team of 4th and 5th-grade students who were selected through teacher nominations and an application process. Faculty advisors volunteer to work alongside students and to provide guidance when needed.

“Leaving a ‘LEGACY’ is important work as it provides a focus for those coming behind while at the same time allowing for increased depth and participation,” said Bill Lakin, KEF President. “This Team of nominated 4th and 5th Graders will establish the blueprint for those to follow.”

This spring, the Celebration Express delivered grants totaling $81,631 to bring education to life for our learners. From a Science learning garden to an Engage EVERY Family Center, our Spring 2021 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. 

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.
