School Supply Drive

We want to make sure every student has what they need to be successful – and that means basic school supplies.

Your donationto the KGW School Supply Drive stays in our district.  We receive a truckload of supplies just as school is starting and we direct those supplies back into our district schools.
We have our own local school supply drive.  If you see a blue bin at an area business, you can be assured that those donations are added to our warehouse supply.

This year, First Student Transportation Services launched “Operation Backpack”.  Bus drivers will  collect school supplies that they will use to stuff new backpacks full of everything students need to get started this school year.  A supply of backpacks will be available to bus drivers and if they identify a student who needs a new backpack they can offer one full of goodies.

Our Mission

The Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation is dedicated to supporting every student in the Gresham-Barlow School District.  We partner with our community to provide funding to foster innovative and engaging learning experiences and provide opportunities to ensure that every student has what they need to experience a world-competitive education.

Sports for Health Grant

The Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation is one of 17  nonprofits to receive a Sport for Heath Grant from the Portland Trail Blazers presented by Nike.

The $10,000 grant will fund adaptive equipment for special needs students at Barlow High School.  Students will have access to modified basketball hoops, baseball and golf equipment as well as yoga and dance supplies.   Standard PE equipment such as playground balls that are larger and brightly colored will allow students with visual impairments to participate in a variety of PE activities.

Barlow High School teacher Katie Zimmerman’s goal is to create a PE class that includes both students with special needs and typical students to encourage positive relationships and mutual respect.  Research shows that when students with special needs are exposed and have positive interactions with their typically developing peers, they grown exponentially and show academic gains including improved performance on standardized tests, behavior and motivation to learn.

 

The Boeing Company Grant

The Boeing Company has awarded the Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation a $10,000 grant to enhance K-5 STEM education.

Since 2007, The Boeing Company has provided over $89,000 to the Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation.  This significant contribution has allowed our school district to positively impact our students learning specifically in the areas of math, science and technology.

The Boeing Company’s grant awards focus on programs that strengthen the effectiveness of teachers in math and science with priority to teacher development.
