The GEF held its annual celebration yesterday evening at the North Shore Arts Association. The beautiful hall was decorated with art made by kids from all GPS schools.

This year, GEF supporters heard from GPS students who benefited from a sampling of GEF-funded programs. They included a group of Beeman students talking about their summer STEM/engineering program, a song performed by the three actors portraying Mary Poppins in this year's O'Maley musical, and a drone demonstration by GHS robotics/engineering student Austin Monell.

GEF's big hat goes off to Applied Materials, a global company with a Gloucester presence, for its recent support on several fronts. In September, the Applied Materials Foundation awarded GEF two grants totaling $34,623 for two projects in physics and robotics at Gloucester High School--more information will be forthcoming on these! And in late September, AMAT employees gathered at the company's Blackburn site in Gloucester to assemble 125 teacher supply kits for educators in all of Gloucester's five elementary schools (*not pictured, Beeman Memorial). Some of the much-needed classrooms supplies included pens and pencils, dry erase markers, hand sanitizer, notebooks, highlighters, tissues, and more.

Many thanks to Applied Materials for its long-standing support of GEF and Gloucester's students and teachers!
