The Brooksville Education Foundation & The Brooksville Elementary School
A Partnership to Expand Educational Horizons
The Brooksville Education Foundation annually budgets about $3,000 to underwrite the enrichment of programs in the Brooksville Elementary School (BES). Over the years we have helped to sponsor a broad range of activities including: visits to the school by alumni to share their college experiences, a science night for students and parents, several robotics clubs, field trips to Alaska, the Grand Canyon and Quebec, the purchase of science and audio-visual video equipment, the purchase of musical instruments, a series poetry workshops, an artist in residence, and the first Camp Chewonki visit to BES. If you would like to lend financial support to future efforts of this sort, you may do so by donating to the Maryann Snow Bates Education Fund.
If you are a teacher or volunteer in the BES and would like more information about grant availability in support of school programs and how to apply, please contact the BES principal, who serves ex officio as a member of the BEF board of trustees.
Brooksville is blessed with an extraordinary breadth of talent and experiance among its residents. In partnership with the School, the Foundation encourages volunteers from the community to share their time and talents to enrich elementary education in Brooksville. If you have an interest in expanding the educational horizons of school children beyond what the normal BES curriculum can offer, we would like to hear from you.
