BVEF Surprise Squad Awards Liberty View Elementary

As we are well aware, so many traditions have been hard to uphold this year, but BVEF’s Surprise Squad found a way to make this event happen… with a twist! 


Instead of visiting each school in person to hand out teacher and building grants, on Wednesday, December 2, 2020, the Blue Valley Educational Foundation invited LVE principal, Stacey Eubanks, to celebrate at Hilltop Conference Center and our administration received a check for $2,000!


This year, BVEF is funding $178,000 on building and program grants, suicide prevention programs for middle and high schools and supporting a Career Tech Ed partnership for our students with JCCC. They have funded more than $6.2 million over the last 30 years.


The LVE building grant will be used to fund two great on-line subscriptions – Breakout EDU and Mystery Science Theater.  We are excited that students will be able to expand their STEM skills with these two subscriptions.


“This is one of the best days to be an educator in the Blue Valley district,” says Mrs. Eubanks.  “We couldn’t continue to be on the forefront of education without support from BVEF and I’m so grateful that they found a way to continue to support our students and teachers even though they couldn’t visit our school.”


In addition to our grant funding, LVE also received a beautiful, matted print of a painting by BV alum, and world-renowned artist, Jeff Hanson, which we will proudly display for everyone in the building to enjoy!
