The Lowe’s Gives Foundation recently awarded a $94,049.64 grant to Forrest Hill Academy (FHA) for Addressing Trauma through Social Emotional Learning (SEL), Tranquility, and Kinesthetic. Forrest Hill Academy will use the grant to build an outdoor classroom, create a sustainable garden, add peace corners to the classrooms, and beautify the inside of the school.
“This grant will have a huge impact on our school and the community,” said Dr. Kimberly Rosenberg, the school’s SEL coach. “We have a high performing principal and great teachers dedicated to educating every child. Now, with the support from Lowe’s, we will enhance our current space so that it is representative of the passion and dedication brought forth by the staff.”
Elijah Barnes, current 6th grade student ambassador at FHA found out about the grant and was excited. “it makes me feel special that Lowe’s would want to donate so much money to us,” he said. “Changing the way our building looks can help us change our minds and behaviors.”
