"My kindergarteners have been LOVING the Osmo’s. I knew that they would be engaging, but I never dreamed that they would go home and talk about them all night to their parents. I have 2 parents who are buying Oslo’s for their kids for Christmas because they talk about it so much at home. Thank you for this opportunity. I (and KE friends!) really appreciate it!"

From the Solon Economist
The Career Tech department at Solon was awarded a SEF grant for the 2018-2019 school year. We utilized those funds to purchase a set of Bar Clamps to assist the students with completing their skills assessments and class projects. The improvements to quality of work and student learning has been wonderful.
One of the Critical Competencies of our department involves exposing students to tools and processes that they would encounter in career environments. Any student with an interest in woodworking, carpentry, homebuilding, facility maintenance, or other building trades will benefit from having access to the increasing variety of tools and accessories in our shop.
Thank you to your Foundation and all of its donors and sponsors for making these purchases possible for our departments. You are making a difference in our classrooms.
