St. Boniface Receives grant for New SmartBoard

Recently the St. Boniface School showed off their new equipment to representatives of the Harrison and Muriel Dauer Stackpole Family Fund. The donor advised fund is held and administered by the Elk County Community Foundation (ECCF). This past spring a grant was received and approved by the Stackpole Family Fund for $2600. This grant was added to an addition $1000 from a generous donor of St. Boniface School in order to purchase a Smart Board for the newly renovated Computer Room.

The new Smart Board will be used by students in preschool through fifth grades for interactive education, reviews, educational games, and enhanced digital streaming purchased through IU9. In addition to this new larger Smart Board in the Computer room, every classroom from grades one through five now has this improved technology to enhance the learning at each child’s grade level.

The representative from the Foundation and the Stackpole Family Fund were very impressed with the technology advances the school has made. They were equally impressed by the dedications of their school community, donors, staff and teachers to provide the most up to date technology for every student’s at St. Boniface Elementary.

The Advisors for the Harrison and Muriel Dauer Stackpole Family Fund are made up of the Harrison and Muriel Dauer Stackpole’s family and friends. Their goal is to ensure that the Fund continues the good works that both Mr. & Mrs. Stackpole had done in our community during their lifetime and to support the philanthropic causes that were important to both of them.

Applications for the Harrison and Muriel Dauer Stackpole Family Fund are accepted and reviewed quarterly. Please contact the Elk County Community Foundation for specific deadline dates or check out the website at
