The Broomfield Rotary Charitable Foundation recently awarded funding grants to Charitable groups both local and international.  



The Healthy Learning Paths program was awarded a grant in the amount of $1,550.00 to cover teacher scholarships that will allow financially challenged teachers to attend the  Healthy Learning Paths Conference for teachers and health professionals.  This event will cover children's health issues and the relationship between health and learning.  This program is the result of the "Be Well, Learn Well" program that began in Broomfield Emerald Elementary pre-school classes and is being expanded this school year into each grade level at Emerald.  Teachers and health professionals from the Broomfield area will work together to learn, and understand, the ways in which they can work together to help implement the "Be Well, Learn Well" program in every school.  The conference will be held on September 12th at the Ramada Plaza Hotel.
