The Canner Funds provide an avenue of continued support for District students, programs, and initiatives that go beyond what can be funded through the basic operating budget. Contributions directly support the education programs that benefit students and, in turn, the Upper Adams Community.

Upper Adams Canner Funds recently awarded nearly $10,000 in grants to 20 teachers for a variety of classroom activities and materials. Activities included field trips to Penn State’s Chemical Reactor for high school Chemistry Students; Washington, D.C. and the Smithsonian Museums for 7th-grade students; and Hershey Medical Center to view live surgery for anatomy and physiology students. Materials awarded included books, musical instruments, physical education equipment, classroom technology, support for the high school musical, a 3D printer, STEM club support, and more.
