The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation (EOCF) is continuing a worthy partnership with the Edmonton Public Schools Foundation to fund another full-day kindergarten class for the 2013-14 school year.
In 2011, the EOCF recognized the importance of full-day kindergarten and funded a program at Lauderdale School. By continuing the commitment to Oil Country’s youngest learners, another school will be able to provide the necessary means to ensure students will be awarded every opportunity to reach their full academic potentials.
“The full-day kindergarten program at Lauderdale has seen tremendous success,” Said Natalie Minckler, Executive Director of the EOCF. “Funding another school is something that our Board felt very strongly about.”
The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation (EOCF) is dedicated to “changing lives” in Oil Country through the support of registered charities that focus their activities on education and health & wellness for youth.
