Support Andover Public Schools!
For almost 10 years, Andover Coalition for Education (ACE) has provided steadfast support for the Andover Public Schools by providing private funding for curricula-enhancing initiatives at all grade levels, thanks to the generosity of our donors. Please donate today to the 2014 Annual Appeal so that we can continue our important mission of providing the best education to our children.
2014 ANNUAL APPEAL
Thanks to generous friends in the community, ACE has granted more than $525,000 to the Andover public schools to support educational initiatives. Over the past two years, these grants have included:
- The purchase of a WeatherBug weather station - a state-of-the art, scientific-grade weather monitoring system available to all Andover classrooms and the larger Andover community (You can visit the site at www.weatherbug.com)
- Support for a new graphic arts design lab at the high school
- Funding the first two years of a visiting artist program across the district
More recently, ACE supported the science and technology curriculum, including the purchase of Lego Mindstorm kits to make the new middle school engineering program possible. All 7th and 8th grade students at the three middle schools will now have the opportunity to design, build, and program devices using Lego Mindstorm EV3 Core and Expansion kits. This innovative program is engaging students in a new way that will build and hone their engineering design and basic computer coding skills.
In the year to come, ACE will continue to support the expansion and improvement of the science and technology curriculum. We are working closely with the school administration to identify high priority initiatives in need of funding that will help prepare our students for a changing global environment.
Please join us in supporting Andover's students by making a gift today!
