"Thank you for reaching out to me in the Foundation’s time of need. For several years, CEF was especially helpful to our Transition Program at CHS. As the former Transition Coordinator, I knew so well that our special education students would benefit significantly from your concern and generosity, as the much-appreciated funding helped to support and promote independent living through our work skills program. Today, many of these Clifton High School grads are gainfully employed and contribute positively to their families and community. Thanks so much for helping them to achieve their work and/or career goals! Indeed, I am thrilled to “give back” with a donation to a wonderful cause that helps our district students to achieve success in learning and life!"
"Thank you to the Committee for providing funds for the Omegaman and Friends Virtual PBIS Assembly program. The program’s message delivered PBSIS, Anti-Bullying and Character Development themes through superhero characters, “Omegaman & Friends.” Thank you for your continued support through the years."

"On December 1, Clifton School No. 15 provided a virtual assembly for our fifth graders called “Teen Truth” led by a school culture expert JC Pohl. We would like to thank you for assisting us with funding this program. With the funds, we were able to provide an assembly that reinforced important social and emotional topics. With such a challenging year, it was important to emphasize social and emotional health and how to take care of themselves and others. Again, thank you for this opportunity and we look forward to providing our Clifton students more educational and engaging assembly programs."

"On behalf of our students at CCMS, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your generous grant towards our virtual musical video production of “Annie Kids”. With this grant, we were able to purchase wonderful costumes and small props for our cast to enhance their virtual and artistic experiences while they filmed and performed at home. This year was unlike any other musical production we have ever done, and especially with the lack of fundraising opportunities due to COVID-19, this grant was truly appreciated."

"We had many students place and win top awards this year in the STANJ Virtual Competition 2021, including two students who placed FIRST in each of their categories, one of which was a GOVERNOR’S AWARD!!! A very exciting year and we thank you so much for your support and generosity! The Clifton Education Foundation is such an amazing group that helps our students and programs so much each year. We really appreciate all that you do!"

"Thank you for the opportunity you gave me to incorporate flexible seating into my classroom this past school year. With this grant, I purchased a low table with a dry erase tabletop, where my students were able to interact together in small groups and collaborate throughout the day. This addition to our classroom would not have been possible without the help of the Clifton Education Foundation! Thank you for everything you do for the students and teachers in Clifton!"

"We would like to express our gratitude to the Clifton Education Foundation for the grant to support our “Sensory Hallway” Project. Without them, this project would never have happened. This was a labor-intensive project, but even more a materials intensive project, material that could only be afforded through the CEF's generosity. Our hearts are filled with gratitude."

"On behalf of the Woodrow Wilson Middle School Musical Production Team, we would like to thank you for the $500 scholarship that was used towards the purchase of our costume rentals. This is an expense that makes a big impact on performance."

"Thank you so much for this generous grant. The World Language teachers at Christopher Columbus Middle School were able to utilize the Yoga for Classrooms Cards in our classrooms with our students this year. Thank you for providing the funds for this valuable resource that will be used for years to come. The World Language department at CCMS is very grateful and appreciative, and I know our students are as well."
