TOMAHAWK – Educators from the School District of Tomahawk and St. Mary’s Catholic School were recently awarded Beyond Crayons and Chromebooks grants from the Support Tomahawk Area Resources (STAR) Foundation.

Acting as a community chest for businesses and individuals, the Foundation makes charitable grants to community groups, clubs and non-profit organizations that contribute to the health and vitality of the Tomahawk area.

“The Tomahawk STAR Foundation provides support to groups and/or organizations when they need it,” the Foundation’s website says. “Since its inception in April 2004, the STAR Foundation has donated more than $400,000.00 to local community groups in both general and restricted contributions.”

The Foundation explained that its Beyond Crayons and Chromebooks grants are designed to “enhance and reward innovative teaching, learning and special motivational activities” in public and private Tomahawk-area schools.

The grants impact pre-K through 12th grade students.

The seven funding requests covered a variety of projects, including expanding literacy comprehension, culinary enrichment, creating baskets for an area neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and coding and robotics. In total, $4,960.00 was allocated among Tomahawk Elementary, Middle and High schools, and St. Mary’s.
