Congratulations to all of our 2022-2023 Cape Cod 5 Educational Mini-Grant recipients! We at Cape Cod 5 have the deepest respect for our local teachers and educators and recognize the important role you play in the development of the future leaders of our communities.
Thank you all for your continued commitment to enriching the lives of your students. We are honored to showcase and celebrate your accomplishments!
Our dedicated local educators have once again developed creative projects to inspire, challenge and empower students in our communities. This year, 255 grants were awarded totaling $122,556 to 300 teachers at 83 schools in our communities.
Mini-Grants were awarded to 300 teachers at 83 schools across Cape Cod, the Islands and Southeastern MA.
An audiometer for hearing screenings for students using newer machines that offer a variety of tones to offer options, air conduction evaluation, and interactive push button for the student and they are lightweight and portable so hearing screenings can be done outside of the nurses office.

A sensory table provides students with an opportunity to explore a variety of science materials in an open-ended manner. When the table is filled with water, students can explore the properties of liquid by measuring different amounts, exploring temperature, and pouring water using different supplies. With sand, students can explore measuring, but they can also build and create shapes and structures. Students can excavate items that are buried in the sand, such as little dinosaurs, bones, or even letters of the alphabet during a reading center.
This year, 5 teachers who submitted outstanding projects were chosen to receive larger grants of $1,000 to fund their projects.
