St. Anne: Grant aids support program

St. Anne School was recently awarded a $25,000 grant by the Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Foundation for scholarship support for students enrolled in the Aquinas Learning Support Program for students diagnosed with learning disabilities.

“We are so grateful for this financial support for our students in need,” said St. Anne Principal Karen Bentz. “Everyone deserves the chance to learn and grow in their education. All students learn differently and these funds will directly support Aquinas students whose families are not financially blessed.”

A previous Stabler Foundation Grant enabled St. Anne School to open a second Aquinas Learning Support classroom to meet the growing need for student support.

The Aquinas Learning Support Program, the only elementary program offered in Northampton County, is provided in partnership with the Diocese of Allentown. The program offers one-on-one and small groups instruction at a student’s grade level in reading and math, while they continue to take part in their daily grade level classroomfor all other subjects. Students receive classroom support as needed from the Aquinas teaching staff. Scholarships are still available for 2019-20. For information please contact Eileen Brida at 610-868-4182 or email:
