We are pleased to announce Pfizer Inc. and Groton Laboratories have awarded CfAL with a $4,000 grant for our engaging 5-week summer math project called “Learning Math After School Can Be Fun”.
We wish to express our appreciation and thanks to Pfizer Inc. and Groton Laboratories for awarding CfAL with this grant. The grant will be used to deliver 5 weeks of training to significantly improve the math literacy and appreciation toward math of underperforming 3rd through 5th grade students attending public schools in the poorest neighborhoods of New Haven, CT.
We have already begun meeting with school Math Coaches, as we identify and send invitations to parents of potential participants. Classes begin on July 7th, with a graduation date of August 6th.
We are excited about having the opportunity to train up to 30 students and helping them improve their math performance, self-esteem and appreciation toward math.
Working together Pfizer Inc. and Groton Laboratories and CfAL will make a significant difference by improving public school children’s math education in New Haven.
