grant was fully funded!!

Congratulations to The Environmental Class!! In seven days we had our grant funded!!!! Wahoo!!! Our donations will arrive in September 2013 at the beginning of the school year. It might sound late; but we’re looking forward to our educational materials and tech supplies. We asked for six books to have at our fingertips instead of checking them out at the local public library. The titles are: Mission: Save the Planet, True Green Kids: 100 Things You Can Do to Save the Planet, Inconvenient Truth, An: The Crisis of Global Warming, The Shocking Truth About Energy, Green Power, and Sneaky Green Uses for Everyday Things. Several of these titles were favorites of the students; I’m thrilled we’ll have them at school for everyone to use.

In addition we were funded a mini-ipad and twelve Sony headphones. These items will come in handy when the mini ipads are used in the art classroom and the students are working in pairs. I realized that we needed an additional mini ipad when we were using the mini ipad with the fourth grade classes. They were researching images of their famous Virginians and we really needed one more mini ipad for the classes of 24 students. With the increasing class sizes we will soon have 26 kids; I’ll guess I’ll have to write another grant in the near future.

    The amount of work and pride that you guys have given to Polk in such a short period of time is phenomenal. I can’t wait to see the tour on the 12th. I also can’t wait to see how many great things will come out of your efforts in the year ahead.

    I am so proud of you all and what you do to make JKP the best school in the nation.
