Mark R. Haranas, president and CEO of MutualOne Bank and a MutualOne Charitable Foundation trustee, announced that the Foundation has awarded $2,000 to the Mary E. Stapleton Elementary School in Framingham to support the school’s second annual STEAM night. The event is focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics education.
The Foundation grant will also cover the purchase of science equipment and technology for teaching basic coding concepts. The materials will be re-used in classrooms to further support STEAM education at Stapleton. “With this generous donation from MutualOne Bank, we are able to purchase more STEAM related materials for our students to use throughout the year,” said STEAMathon Co-chair Heather Allen.
The Stapleton student community of over 400 students and their families are invited to attend STEAM night, which is scheduled for March 14, 2018. Admission to the event will be free to all.
“MutualOne is pleased to support STEAM night at the Stapleton School, and to help provide an opportunity for students and their families to share an entertaining evening of learning,” said Haranas.
