School Crashers Award


Each year, the Georgia United Foundation partners with Georgia United Credit Union to offer its School Crashers program to K-12 schools in Georgia. The School Crashers grant program is designed to unite communities, donors and volunteers to complete and support local improvement projects for deserving schools. Over the last seven years, School Crashers has positively impacted the learning environments for children at 50 schools with improvements valued at $1.4 million
West Newton Elementary is a Title I school serving the largest population of students receiving free and reduced lunches in Newton County. This grant will allow the transformation of the Wildcat Woosah into a specially designed sensory room for kindergarten through fifth grades to receive self-regulatory support. In addition, the grant will allow for Cozy Corner sensory kits to be created for classroom checkouts to help decrease classroom disturbances and inappropriate classroom behaviors. This place will be a great benefit and continue to provide multitiered systems of support for the ethnically and diverse student population at West Newton Elementary.
