SCEF"SCEF grants have been instrumental in augmenting our students' educational experiences. What has been truly amazing is that all of these grants have blossomed into projects that have continued to be supported by the South Country School District. From the professional development training to the purchasing of additional equipment, these grants have continued on. Without the commitment and support from many people, these projects would not have succeeded. The grant recipients and the teachers who participated in these exciting endeavors have made these projects possible." -Maryanne Brandi, Kreamer Street School
