Seeds of Inspiration Multimedia Center

East Dover Elementary School was the proud recipient (one of 2 the district won out of 5 in five counties) of a $10,000 OceanFirst Foundation grant to continue the transformation of their media center into an incredible STEAM space that even extends outdoors. Over the past year, using funds and labor from their staff, PTO, the district, and the Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation, the media center was renovated to include better seating, makerspace tools, and tech. 

Thank you, OceanFirst Foundation!
