 Dear Friends,

         As we move closer to 2019,  we all begin thinking about new directions, and CEEF is no different! The new year for CEEF brings new grants, and we’re thrilled to announce our latest round of innovative projects for Cape Elizabeth schools.  The faculty, staff and students of Cape Elizabeth bring fresh approaches and collaborations to the district, and the four grants detailed below reflect those characteristics.  We want to thank you, our donors, whose commitment to CEEF makes these grants possible. 


         Especially exciting for me is a new role at CEEF! I am honored to be moving from serving CEEF as its President into the position of Executive Director. I look forward to working with our board, donors and educators to continue the tradition of innovation and excellence that is a hallmark of Cape schools!

Best wishes for the New Year,

Liz McEvoy
Executive Director
