Thank you Apple Foundation for awarding the "Bugs Alive" grant to us the past five years. The kindergarten children love the experience! The grant allows us to explore scientific principles in a hands-on matter. The children are able to observe the life cycle of various insects and look forward to the butterfly release each year.
"The Apple Foundation and its members are an important piece in educating our youth. In looking back over the past few years, the foundation has been instrumental in helping fund technology and ARTS, while at the same time helping supplement materials requested by teachers in math, reading, and science. The Apple Foundation is a great resource for our teachers and our teachers know this as it enables them to delve deeper in helping our students be more successful. Two thumbs up for the Apple Foundation!

Because of the Apple Foundation's generosity to fund the Rachel's Challenge program at Guntersville High School, students were exposed to issues dealing with and how to react to violence, teasing, social oppression, racism, harassment, conflict management, suicide, peer pressure, alcohol, and drugs. They increased their personal power and self-esteem to shift dangerous peer pressure to positive peer support and eliminate the acceptability of teasing, violence, and all forms of oppression. Without the generous support of the Apple Foundation, in addition to community leaders, this program would not have been possible.

I was honored to receive an Apple Foundation Grant for my MusicalMANIA. This grant has
funded sheet music and CDs for Kindergarten through second grade students, as well as costumes, decorations, and props. All of the students participate in some kind of musical performance each year. Through the Apple foundation, I have been able to purchase some fun and new songs for the kids to learn and perform for the school and their families. These performances create many memories that will stay with them for a lifetime, and this would not be possible without the help of the Apple Foundation.
I am so honored and feel so blessed to be part of a community that supportsour school children, from academics to the arts! It's all very educational and fun for the kids!
Thank you so very much!
