FROM THE OFFICE / SCHOOL
WALKATHON - FULL STEAM AHEAD !!
We are excited to report latest returns for our Walkathon, moving Full STEAM ahead! We have so far reached a total of over $62,000-- we have reached almost 83% of our goal of $75,000!! Thank you Grizzlies!!! Keep getting the word out, share our needs and our goal with whoever you can! Your sharing words make a huge difference!
As we move closer toward our STEM Designation credential from the Ohio Department of Education, the Walkathon will greatly help us raise the funds for resources and equipment to enhance student's project-based learning and collaboration.
These include such things as robotics, 3D printers, other technology and programmable devices and Maker Space supplies, and collaborative student desk furniture. We are also going to upgrade the stage area lighting, which will increase stage usage for integrating performing arts into STEAM projects.
Thank you for your support!
