Congratulations to our Elmbrook Education Foundation Grant Award Recipients!

The Elmbrook Education Foundation (formerly known as the Lancer-Spartan Scholarship Fund) was organized in 1958 to award scholarships to select Elmbrook School District high school graduates.

In 1999, the Foundation's mission expanded to include innovative teacher grants for projects that would benefit all students and raise money to support and strengthen outstanding learning ideas that improve the overall educational quality of our public schools.
 
Since inception, the EEF has awarded over $1,350,000 in scholarships and $450,000 in grants which enhance and extend the established curriculum and support projects that are beyond the District's budget.

The event celebrated fifty-six individual and three team finalists, alumni, 2020-21 retirees, and community partner honorees. The event was held in-person with safety protocols for finalists and honorees, and was simultaneously live-streamed for the public. 

The evening was a mix of sincerity, comedy, and appreciation, and included an emotional tribute to Elmbrook staff for making the school year possible, roving interviews, and more!

The Elmbrook Connect initiative brings internet services to those families in our community without the means to purchase. During these challenging times, virtual capability has become a necessity. We are very excited to announce we have just secured a matching grant donor who will match dollar for dollar up to the next $10,000 raised for this important initiative.  You can go to the Elmbrook Connect site, https://EBConnect21.givesmart.com, click the donate button, select your amount and payment details.  Every dollar between now and the end of February will be matched by a generous Elmbrook graduate who happens to be the owner of Concurrency.  Thank you to Jim Savage for modeling what it means to pay it forward. The Elmbrook Connect Virtual 5K Run/Walk raised over $10,000!
