Congratulations to the teachers at WGHS for being awarded 3 different grants. The “Physical Activity Backpacks” grant is an opportunity for Statesmen Preschool Students to take home physical activity backpacks each with unique equipment and activity ideas. Preschoolers will be learning the importance of a variety of skills including cooperation, hand eye coordination, hand foot eye coordination, gross motor skills, appropriate use of resources, safety and more! Congratulations to students Glory Patrick and Ashli Wagner for their awarded grant!
The “Responsive Spaces” grant was awarded to Sara Herrera and Jennifer Aguado for their students in speech and language therapy. This new space will allow for different seating spaces, brainstorming ideas, and different learning options for all their students. Students will now be able to be more innovative and move around differently and use different materials in the classroom. This innovative space will allow for students to collaborate, showcase their learning and have an area where there is a quiet place for them to learn.
“This is What a Scientist Looks Like” grant was awarded to Joe Boeckman, Skylar Garcia, Greg Heard and Jeanette Hencken. Members of the science department at WGHS believe it is important for students to know that people of all races, ethnicities, gender expressions, socio-economic backgrounds, and ages are scientists and are currently involved in scientific research. The grant will allow for the purchase of posters to be framed and displayed in the science halls to demonstrate that scientists make up a diverse-cross section of human beings
