Whether it was learning about animals from the ocean in a touch tank to finding out how a 3-D printer works; community members and donors had a chance to see the New Caney Independent School District Education Foundation’s grants in action.

The New Caney ISD Education Foundation hosted their second annual “Breeze into Summer” luncheon May 1 where they had the chance to showcase projects funded by grants and thank local businesses and organizations that made these dreams become a reality.

“It’s an honor for me to have the chance to be here; New Caney ISD grows approximately 1,000 students per year and 63 percent of the existing students are considered low income which is a challenge for any school district,” Tom Abrahams, an anchor for ABC-13 KTRK and special guest speaker, said at the luncheon. “For the teachers to continue to provide projects and programs for their students, the Education Foundation approves grants for teachers for various items that may not be included in their budget. The Education Foundation has already donated $137,000 to teachers in this district.”
