Cash 4 Conejo Classrooms awards 2 additional grants in February… thanks to our generous donors!

Cash 4 Conejo Classrooms continues to grow through direct financial support from our community.  This month we were able to award 2 additional grants, made possible by the genrous support of Dennis & Linda Fenton.  Linda was able to join us this week in presenting grants to 2 of our dedicated science teachers at the high school level.

Thousand Oaks High School 9th grade science teacher Ashley Cooper, at right, pictured with donor Linda Fenton,  won a grant for her BIO (Biology Integrated Opportunites) program. 

Ms. Cooper’s students will be introduced to career paths integrated with her biology program.  Highlights include guest speakers such as a cardiologist who will guide students through the observation and dissection of a sheep’s heart.  Grant money will be used to purchase supplies that support the featured specific career related activities.
