Teacher Grants 2020
Nu Teacher grants were presented to eleven Catawba County teachers in December 2020. Money for the grants was from previous fundraisers and from the every-member assessment. Two grants were awarded to Nu Chapter members and two were presented to beginning teachers.
Reader Leaders Project
In 2017-2018 Nu Chapter initiated the Reader Leaders Project with funding from the NC DKG Educational Foundation. Nu members visited seven classrooms in the area school systems three times reading stories, conducting skill lessons, and presenting books and reading incentives to the students in each class. The project will continue in 2020-2021 with funding by the chapter.
Teachers Helping Teachers
Volunteers will share time on Tuesday or Thursday afternoon greeting teachers, giving shopping directions, and checking them out at Classroom Connections, a free materials store for teachers.
Schools for Africa
Nu Chapter supports the UN and DKG Schools for Africa project through our water bottle initiative. Members are encouraged to drink the water and fill the bottle with money to be donated to this International project.
