Junior Kindergartens and High School Language Classes Win Grants in May!

Thousand Oaks High School Spanish teacher Veronica Bass receiving a grant presented by Laurie Lam of Conejo Schools Foundation and Bonnie Adamick.

Ms. Bass will use her grant money to purchase much needed readers for her Spanish 2CP and Spanish for Spanish Speakers classes.

 

Also at Thousand Oaks High School, teacher Jen Smith received a grant for language arts.

Ms. Smith’s students have fallen in love with reading using Kindle Fires.  Grant money will be used to purchase high interest Core Literature novels.

It’s no wonder that TOHS Principal Lou Lichtl is smiling – several TOHS teachers have been awarded C4CC grants this year!  He came along with us to congratulate Ms. Bass and Ms. Smith on their awards.

Both Ms. Fisher and Ms. Stovall will use grant monies to purchase math manipulatives that are needed at the Junior Kindergarten level.  These materials will engage the children in activities that reinforce math concepts.
