Giving Project #1:
Character Cubs Incentives
Our administrators and staff are working hard this year to encourage our kiddos to be their best by living up to the character traits needed to build a strong village. PTO is supporting that by funding some of the incentives earned by the students. So far, through a generous donation from a parent's company, we now have 7 picnic tables under the cafe awning that have been in frequent use for earned outdoor lunches (and pretty popular before school too!) We have hosted incentive parties with ice cream, and cookies and milk, and our most recent incentive had all the eligible students in a drawing for one of 45 gift cards!
Keep up the great work, Cubs!
Giving Project #2:
Teacher Wish List Grants
This has been a great opportunity to see what our teachers are needing in the classroom and we are glad we can supply some of those things. Here are some of the winning grants:
MATH DEPARTMENT: Every math teacher was awarded a stash of basic class supplies and desk dividers to assist with individual and group learning!
SCIENCE DEPARTMENT: Science teachers were awarded two different grants -- first, a set of microscopes that can be plugged into students' Chromebooks to explore objects beyond slides! Second, a set of PocketLab sensors, rockets, and remote control cars to gather motion data during hands-on experiments. These are both great learning enhancements to get the students engaged!
SPECIAL EDUCATION: SPED classes received a variety of sensory manipulatives, fidget objects, and wiggle seating to help students function within the classroom. Sensory centers are so important!
And more grants are coming!
Future Giving Project:
Back Porch Improvements
Our board has proposed a plan and is working on getting the details in place to add usable outdoor space for our teachers and students. This will be a two-year fundraising effort, at least. We hope to add a larger paved space in the back, between the cafe and the practice field, to give additional space for outdoor classroom/flex space, P.E. hard top, and after school pickup. We also plan to extend the walkway down the side of the practice field, to help with after school pickup. Finally, we would like to add some cover to the new concrete pad and even the walkway between the back hallway/glass wall and the pickup corner.
We hope to have the specifics soon so we can gather bids. If you are interested in working on this project, please get in touch with PTO! Funds will come from membership drive, fundraisers, and outright donations/Write A Check/ company match.
