New Ground received a $25,000 gift from Long Island philanthropist, Theresa Santmann. This very generous donation from the Theresa Patnode Santmann Foundation will support our Education Assistance Program which covers costs of essential materials and services, which many of us take for granted. These expenses are not covered by the school districts however they expand a child’s education and contribute toward a well-rounded academic experience that best prepares them for the future. Proven services include: SAT study courses, graduation fees, musical instrument rentals, after-school activities such as debate club, sports and drama society, uniform costs, scientific calculators, fees for school trips, eye glasses, college application fees, and much more.
