2018 Grant Highlights Video

Thank you, Arlington community! This video highlights a few recent grants the Arlington Education Foundation has provided with your support. We rely on community donations for providing over $100,000 in grant funding each year to innovative Arlington educators. We appreciate your continued support.

The Arlington Education Foundation (AEF) has completed its fall grants cycle and has awarded a total of $22,434 in two grant categories, Innovations in Education and the Continuing Scholar Award.

The Gibbs math teachers received a grant for a school-wide set math games. Specifically, these mathematics games were chosen due to their distinctive alignment with the 6th grade Massachusetts Curriculum Framework for Mathematics.

Arlington Education Foundation has partnered with the Belmont Savings Bank Foundation and the Arlington Public Schools to bring project-based learning to life at the Gibbs School with the installation of a media wall.

Congratulations to our 2018 AHS and Ottoson Star Teachers of the Year!
