The Cape Henlopen Educational Foundation (CHEF) hosted a “Friends of Cape” event on Friday, November 15, 2019, at the Rehoboth Elementary School.  During the event, Bob Fulton, the Cape Henlopen School District superintendent, discussed how CHEF and the entire community contribute to the success of students.  Jeff Gordon provided an overview of CHEF and how members of the community can “Inspire Learning” by becoming a “Friend of Cape.”  Attendees also heard from several students and teachers who have received CHEF grants and toured the new, state-of-the-art Rehoboth Elementary School.  For information on becoming a “Friend of Cape” visit https://www.chef-cape.org/friend-of-cape/

“Thanks to the funding provided by CHEF, all our 5th grade students in the CHSD were able to participate in their first Science Fair.  This learning opportunity allowed over 375 students the possibility of exploring and questioning the world around them.”
