We are very pleased to let you know that the AVANGRID Foundation has awarded CfAL with a $2,000 grant for our summer math project called Learning Math After School Can Be Fun.
For readers unfamiliar with AVANGRID, it is the new parent company of United Illuminating and Southern Connecticut Gas in Orange, CT. Its logo is below.
With this grant, we will intervene and help improve the math literacy of under-performing 3rd and 4th grade students attending elementary schools in a few of the poorest neighborhoods of New Haven. CfAL will deliver 5 weeks of engaging math instruction to as many as 28 students attending these schools. We are now in our 4th week of training, and completing students, who we will call Math Stars, will graduate on August 4th.
We wish to express our appreciation and thanks to the AVANGRID Foundation for awarding CfAL with this grant, and its generous financial support. We are also thankful for AVANGRID being our community partner, as we mutually strive to strengthen the New Haven community, by helping to improve disadvantaged public school children’s education and quality of life.
