LIS RECEIVES KINZE FUNDS

Mr. Grewe recently wrote a grant to the Kinzenbaw foundation in order to purchase a cart of 30 Chromebooks for our school and to donate funds toward replacing a couple outdated laptops for our teachers and staff.  We asked for $ 10,350.00 from the foundation.                           

The Kinzenbaw Charitable Fund has funded the full amount of our request!  We praise God for this gift and thank  the foundation for their continuous support of LIS!

With special donations from the past we have added a little over $15,000 to the grant and have place an order for the following: 

In the next several weeks we should receive  3 Chromebook carts with 72 new Chromebooks,  72 Chromebook protection and licenses, 72 Max Shell Protection Cases for the Chomebooks,  and 13 new laptops for our faculty and staff.    That's a lot of updated technology for our students!    We praise God for this opportunity!
