Liberty Bank Foundation grants $5,000 to AFLCT for HOT Schools in Hamden


Arts for Learning Connecticut is thrilled to announce a $5,000 grant from Liberty Bank Foundation!

This funding will support the third year of our whole-school, deep impact, teaching and learning program, Higher Order Thinking (HOT) Schools, at Church St Elementary School in Hamden. Through this program, all students and educators at the school benefit from arts learning programs that are designed to enrich school culture, expand teacher practice, and improve student engagement. With professional development, arts-integrated residencies, creative workshops, and cultural performances throughout the 2022-23 school year, HOT Schools will continue to strengthen Church St’s Social and Emotional Learning and Culturally Responsive Teaching capacity, serving both students and educators.

Special thanks to Liz and Cody at our local Hamden branch for all the support, and to Toral Maher, Liberty Bank Foundation Executive Director, for the guidance and partnership!
