Congratulations to Lake's own, Coach Mike Starkey!! Coach Starkey was chosen as the Delaware Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association "Coach of the Year"!
South Elementary was honored to welcome Governor Carney, Lt. Governor Hall-Long, Associate Secretary of Education Rodriguez, Highmark President Tim Constantine and a Representative from First Book. South was awarded a portion of a $50,000 grant from Highmark. Highmark is helping schools across the state restock their basic needs closets so students have access to clothing, school supplies, hygiene products and other essentials.
The grant comes in two installments. The first $25,000 recently was distributed to help school leaders restock the closets for the second half of the academic year. The second $25,000 will come in June so the schools can restock over the summer for the new school year.
The basic needs closets, which launched in August in 45 high-need schools across the state, are a result of the coordinated efforts of Delaware educators, Delaware businesses, Delaware healthcare institutions, and a partnership with First Book.
The basic needs closets provide elementary and middle school students across the state with increased access to free products designed to meet students’ needs so they can effectively participate in class. Each school’s basic needs closet is stocked with products identified by districts and charter schools as essential to the wellbeing of their students. Students are able to discreetly access the closets throughout the school year. The initiative aims to meet students’ basic needs with dignity so they can be ready to learn in class.
