The Institute for Excellence and Ethics (IEE) worked with the LaFayette School District, Bishop Grimes, and the Cathedral at Pompei to receive a grant of $21,3oo. to work with staff and parents during the 2010-2011 school year. The grant was awarded earlier this month and IEE will be working with all three schools this summer to prepare for next year.
The IEE Team all contributed to this successful grant. John and Lucia Cataldo played a key leadership role in the pursuit of this grant which was just over a six month process from beginning to end.
One of the exciting things about this grant is the opportunity we are going to have to work with parents and schools in our own community. We will keep our team informed as to the progress with this project. We are hopeful that the parent component will be someting that all of our team can benefit from in the future.
