Happy 30th Anniversary! Amherst Schools Education Foundation
has supported countless important projects over the years to expand opportunities for Amherst students. Most notably, the Foundation gave $200,000 last year to help the district renovate Steele High School’s media center into the Creative Learning Center that shares its name. According to Superintendent Sayers, the CLC has been used more in the last seven months than the original space had been used in the last ten years! Older classes often use the space to collaborate on group and multi-media projects. Younger classes use the CLC to access concepts beyond their classrooms. Our Kindergarteners recently used the presentation space to video chat with a park ranger from Yosemite National Park. The Foundation has also awarded tens of thousands in scholarships to graduating seniors over the years.
