Applications are now open for the 2024 FELS grant cycle. The deadline for applications is 5pm, Wednesday, March 1, 2024.
Are you an L-S teacher or staff member that is inspired to inspire others? Do you have an interesting project you would like to do during vacation or free time that will promote your professional or personal growth? Would you like some funding for that project and be willing to share what you have learned with the community?
Please help us reach our $15,000 goal by donating here!
The Board of FELS, the Foundation for Educators at Lincoln-Sudbury (www.felsgrant.org) would like to thank everyone who made our Thanksgiving Pie sale an enormous success this year.
Ruth-Anne Adams and Tom Fosnot of The Hyve, who made each pie from scratch, along with many helping hands from our Board and MLK Action Project student volunteers, all came together to distribute pies to many Thanksgiving tables in our towns. We had numerous calls and emails about the pies and gratitude from those receiving donated or gifted pies.
This year, we doubled the number of pies sold in 2022. Thanks to many generous people, by the numbers we delivered to:
- LS Teachers and Staff, 29 gifted and 6 raffled pies
- Sudbury Food Pantry, 31 pies
- Sudbury Fire and Police, 11 pies
- Lincoln Fire and Police, 9 pies
The FELS annual appeal continues through the end of the year and we encourage you to visit our website and please consider a donation. Every dollar counts and from those donations we can fund opportunities for our teachers and staff to pursue their personal dreams and passions. Our motto, Inspired Teachers Inspire Students, is not just aspirational. We hear time and time again what a difference the opportunities we fund make in the professional lives of faculty and staff.
FELS will meet again in January to hear from some of 2023’s grant recipients and plan for 2024’s grant cycle. Our meetings are posted on our website and are open to the public.
With thanks and best wishes for a Happy Holiday Season,
For the FELS Board
FELS, the Foundation for Educators at LSRHS, is a non-profit organization that awards enrichment grants to Lincoln-Sudbury High School faculty and staff to pursue their professional and personal interests and passions. FELS was founded in 2000 to offer parents a tangible way to show their appreciation to the L-S professional staff for the unflagging dedication, tireless effort, and genuine caring they routinely offer our children. Our guiding principle is “Inspired Teachers Inspire Students.”
FELS continues to support our faculty and staff for their efforts in fully supporting our children’s education. Your support is critical in affirming our belief in an LSRHS education and in supporting those who are working tirelessly to provide just that. We appreciate contributions of time, talent, and funds to enable us to fulfill our mission. We welcome new members to join us, and our meetings and events are posted on the right sidebar. For further information, please click here to get in touch!
How you can help
In a “typical” year, we have many programs and activities. You can make a donation to FELS, buy our pies for Thanksgiving, attend the Faculty Variety Show, and attend one of our teacher-led lectures or annual FELS Talk. For now, please consider making a donation and know you will be welcome to join us for board meetings.
The LSRHS teachers and staff continue to work very hard to offer an excellent education for our children. Please consider a donation to FELS honoring their efforts and giving them a healthy grant funding opportunity. Pursuit of personal interests and passions in turn brings refreshment and new focus for what is offered in the classrooms at LSRHS. Inspired teachers inspire students!
