Kindergarten students at Stadium Drive Elementary are playing learning games with items that include water, fishing poles, letters, numbers, magnets and velcro dart boards--just a few STEM learning stations that captivate them. The kids don't even notice that they're reading, spelling and writing better because they're having so much fun.

These are just two of the seven teacher mini grants funded last school year by the Boardman Schools Fund for Educational Excellence, a component fund of the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley.

Boardman's Annual Reverse Raffle Dinner is set for Friday, March 6, at Avion Banquet Center on Western Reserve Road. It's the main fundraiser for the Boardman Schools Fund for Educational Excellence, which every year, hands out teacher mini-grants that make a huge impact in Boardman classrooms. This year, the grants totaled nearly $10,000.

"There is no doubt that these teacher mini grants help give students experiences that go beyond what is provided by state and local funding," said BSFEE Board President Davidson. "Our Reverse Raffle helps us fund these creative projects, and is also a great night out for all involved."

Doors open at 6 p.m. Friday, March 6, at the Avion Banquet Center. There will be a series of cash prizes given away during the course of the evening. The final ticket drawn at the end of the night will be worth $2,000.

Reverse Raffle tickets are $50. Contact the Superintendent's Office to order tickets, at 330-726-3404. Please reserve a seat by Feb. 17.
