Highlights of 2012-2013: Sycamore Canyon Elementary School

At Sycamore Canyon Elementary, 2nd grade teacher team Kate Taillon, Mary Catherine Shmina, Debbie Neshek, Christy Arnold, Lisa Anthony, and Suzie Cooper shared grant money to purchase supplies for activities bringing to life their study unit, “Pebbles, Sand, & Silt.”

The teachers reported:

“Our Geology/Earth Science Unit in November was culminated with the students as amateur geologists mining for REAL gems. This activity made such a difference, fueling EVERY child’s enthusiasm for Earth Science. This activity consisted of 5 classrooms with 23 students in each. This Grant was extremely helpful. This would never be a possibility to purchase such rich materials with our sorely depleted classroom funds. Thank you so very much!!!”
