CNHS Receives $10,000 Grant from OceanFirst Foundation

On October 2, Colts Neck High School was awarded a $10,000 grant from the OceanFirst Foundation to transform a classroom into a Mathematics Lab.

Dr. Maria Steffero, Supervisor of Math and Science, and Dr. Brian Donahue, Principal, accepted the grant to build an interactive classroom that will engage students in collaborative approaches to solving authentic, real-world mathematics problems. The grant money will go towards the purchase of multiple technologies and flexible seating for the new Mathematics Lab.

According to the OceanFirst Foundation, the goal of the Model Classroom Grant Program is to support bold and innovative schools that have the vision, creativity and desire to develop model classrooms for learning. The program is open to all schools (K-12) in the OceanFirst Bank footprint. Grant requests are judged on factors including: the overall quality of the application, the school’s vision for the classroom and the proposed use of funds, creativity, sustainability, the school’s ability to carry out the project, partnerships, the budget and leveraged support, plans for assessment and promotion, student and community involvement and potential for impact on the school community.
