Creating Young Environmental Stewards!

We received a substantial grant from the Mary and Robert Pew Public Education Foundation for "Together We Grow: Creating compassionate, reflective, Young Environmental Stewards (YES!) through inquiry-based, problem-solving techniques, and arts integration."

This Generous grant will support the implementation of an Art Club, art supplies, Artist in Residence to support a strings instrumental program, instruments, fish tanks of varying ecosystems, invertebrate touch tank, professional development, and planning sessions for staff to integrate the tanks into instruction, professional development for Inquiry-Based and Problem-Solving techniques, and much more.

This year, a grant from the Hamilton Family Trust will help us to enrich our current YES! program by generously funding a partnership with the REEF Institute. Instructors from the REEF Institute will supplement our current science program by providing a comprehensive study of marine science to all K-5 students. Additionally, they will collaboratively plan with our teachers and science lab instructor to integrate instruction into a comprehensive school-wide study.

Stay tuned for exciting updates!
