Biannually thanks to Michelin, the Lexington One Educational Foundation offers this grant opportunity to our teachers in Lexington One through a generous annual gift. Teachers can apply for up to $250 of support to enhance unique educational experiences for their students. The intent is not to supplement normal school supplies, but to allow for more creative learning opportunities that are not typically supported by the school supply budget. 

Some of this spring’s Golden Apple funded projects included the purchase of Legos to build math concepts, specialized books to enhance literacy efforts, and cultural materials to enhance foreign language mastery. 

Congratulations to each of these teachers and their school administrators for this accomplishment! We greatly appreciate Michelin’s continued generosity and commitment to Lexington School District One teachers and students in partnering with the Foundation to offer these terrific educational opportunities!
