"We look forward to a longstanding partnership with Whole Foods Market. They seek to serve the whole person, and as a foundation, we seek to serve every child in the district and create well rounded students." The KEF has awarded more than $1.1 million dollars in innovative educator grants and funded special projects such as the Reading Express and the STEAM Express. The Reading Express mobile library is one of many educational initiatives the foundation has brought to the district since it started in 2000. The KEF's latest project is the STEAM Express mobile education trailer which will hit the streets this coming fall. The STEAM Express will include multiple learning centers focusing on science, technology, engineering, arts and math. For more information about the Whole Foods Market Champions, click here.

Klein Forest Student Receives Lifetime Award Prior to Graduation
Jun 05 2014 - 03:37:00 pm

Senior Marvyn Ross will walk across the stage this weekend with his fellow Klein Forest classmates, but he’s achieved one thing not many other people have. He’s receiving the “Lifetime Perfect Attendance Award” which is only conferred to students who have not missed a single class in the past 14 years. 

 

“It means a lot to me to receive this and hopefully it will help me strive to do the same thing in college,” Ross says.

 

He believes it was all possible with the help of his mother pushing him to get up each day. In the fall, he’ll be attending Sam Houston State University where he plans to major in nursing.

Greenwood Forest Garden Club Partners with Klein Forest
Jun 05 2014 - 03:22:00 pm

Student written story focuses on the impact of local group

As the Greenwood Forest Home and Garden Club members enter the Greenwood Forest clubhouse for their Christmas breakfast, their eyes settle on the beautiful centerpieces created by the Klein Forest High School Floral Design Department.

 

 “I enjoy this partnership very much,” Doris Johnson said. “Exposing young students to horticulture and floral design is beneficial.”

 

The partnership is a continued relationship between the garden club members and floral design students, strengthening bonds as they work together.

 

 “I thoroughly appreciate this project,” Wilma Colbert said. “It is worth it to help others to educate themselves in what we enjoy.”

 

Initially, the garden club awarded one $500 scholarship to a horticulture major; however, many students don’t decide they will major in horticulture until their early to mid-years in college. With the garden club’s constant lending hand, they are able to expose these kids to horticulture early, so that their interest grows throughout the years. 

 

With Klein Forest’s Floral Design teacher Amanda Simmons’ creative thinking, she asked if they could divide the scholarship into five $100 awards and garden club members agreed. Scholarship recipients use the award to pay for the cost of the floral design certification.

 

“This way, we are able to broaden our impact on more students,” Johnson said. 

 

Working with the kids not only brings joy to the women, but also benefits and serves as a great impact on those who are awarded the scholarship.

 

“We had a student come to us thanking us for giving her the opportunity to be able to take the certification exam,” Johnson said. “She was the first in her family to be going off to college and this scholarship allowed her to do what she loves and get a job.”

 

Accomplishing the goal of partnering to make a change in lives means everything to the members and Simmons.

 

“This really means a lot to us,” Simmons said. “This is a hand in hand partnership, and we both help out as much as we possibly can.”

 

The Greenwood Forest Home and Garden Club participates in other projects including seasonal mini competitions such as the Christmas centerpiece contest, an opportunity for horticulture and floral design students to earn money and prizes. Other projects include garage sales and fundraisers.

 

The continued partnership between the garden club and Klein Forest has remained strong the past six years and has since grown even stronger.

 

“I have always been fond of the program,” Colbert said. “And it is becoming more exciting and I have grown even fonder as we continue on.”
