Urban Enterprise Enrichment GrantHailmann Receives La Porte Urban Enterprise Enrichment Grant

Students and staff at Hailmann School celebrated as they received a LaPorte Urban Enterprise Enrichment Grant in the amount of $4,100.00. 

Ms. Pat Waldo, Manufacturing Services Manager at American Licorice, and Mrs. Barbara Maitland, Principal of Hailmann Elementary School, collaborated to submit the grant to the LaPorte Urban Enterprise Association, which is a comprehensive economic and community development organization that promotes development in the enterprise zone.  The purpose of the grant is to provide students living in the enterprise zone with school supplies and access to educational materials. 

These grant funds along with generous donations from American Licorice Company, ATI Casting Service, and Packaging Logic will be used to purchase school supplies, dictionaries for fifth grade students, additional trade books for the classrooms, and learning resources for students and teachers.

Approximately two hundred students attending Hailmann School live in the enterprise zone.  These students need to have appropriate supplies in order to participate in all classroom activities.  Students become more involved and excited about learning when properly prepared which results in increased student achievement.

Hailmann students and staff are grateful to the LaPorte Urban Enterprise Association, American Licorice, ATI Casting, and Packaging Logic for the funds to support learning.
