How this will help

Program Detail:
Our school program is based on motivating students to reach their full potential by keeping the curriculum rigorous, meaningful, and engaging. We have a strong educational partnership with members of our parent community which creates a unified and supportive atmosphere for learning. We pride ourselves on implementing research based practices to give our students significant, hands-on experiences that build deeper connections. As a result of recent budget cuts and larger class sizes it has become difficult to provide many of these types of activities, especially in the area of Science.

How this Grant will Help:
Our school would greatly benefit from having a designated Science Lab accessible to all grade levels. A safe environment dedicated to science and designed to complete inquiry-based experiments would promote a deeper understanding of the content, as well as reinforce the importance of science as a discipline. A science lab would allow teachers to conduct experiments more frequently by having supplies easily accessible, organized, and consolidated. This common space would promote peer collaboration across grade levels. In addition, it would provide opportunities for displaying student projects, validating their work, and inspiring others. Most importantly, our goal for our students is to instill an enthusiasm for learning science while they are still curious about how the world works. Science can, and should be fun and hands-on. This lab will help us achieve this goal for years to come.
