Chad Hymas Visits Ogden

Utah Humanities and the Ogden School Foundation recently sponsored assemblies at all of our schools for our students to learn from the incredible Chad Hymas. Students were engaged and inspired as Chad, along with his son Ace, spoke about not limiting ourselves and realizing that there is more than one way to accomplish our goals. Chad described the accident that left him paralyzed and compared it to the paralysis all of us sometimes feel as we encounter different struggles in our own lives, but he also reminded all in attendance that by reaching out and serving those around us, we can achieve our dreams — not in spite of our circumstances, but because of them. It was a powerful message for our students and all who were able to attend.

Ogden School Foundation Partners With DonorsChoose.org

We are excited to announce our partnership with DonorsChoose.org as our new Classroom Grants Program platform! This partnership will allow us to leverage more funding from donors across the country (and in our own community!), increase the number of grants we are able to fund, provide more flexibility and easier applications, and allow our educators to apply for funding year-round. 

Each teacher can post requests with a total goal of up to $2,000. The Ogden School Foundation will match each donation for all qualifying projects, up to $1,000 per teacher. As with our previous grant program, athletics and extra-curricular activities will be excluded from our match offer.

We look forward to rolling out this new process and seeing the great ideas and projects our educators have in store for our students and classrooms this year!

Ron McBride Foundation Donation

For the third consecutive year, the Ron McBride Foundation has provided significant donations to support our students! Highland Junior High, Ben Lomond High, and Ogden High recently received $15,000 each to support Achievement Clubs and Healthy Learners Programs. With an additional $5,000 provided to each school from the Ogden School Foundation, these important after-school programs each received a total of $20,000 to help our students maximize their potential and achieve success. Coach Mac also learned that Highland Junior High needed some help washing clothes for students and athletes, so he reached out to our local Home Depot store to donate a brand new washer and dryer. What an incredible gift!
