**Exciting Happenings at Harvest...

Project Lead the Way - A hands on approach to teaching science. This is a grant that we are involved with which will help our students get involved with learning and creating. We received 50 New iPad Air 2's through the PLTW grant. These have been given to 3rd - 5th grade classrooms participating in PLTW.

UAH STEM Grant - Our school has partnered with UAH engineering students to participate in a STEM grant.

The UAH students have completed the marble roller coaster and delivered it Friday, April 7 for our ACE students to utilize it. Next school year, we will make opportunities for all students to participate with this STEM activity.

Title I - We are a Title I School which benefits our students. The government has given Harvest Title I funds this year which will be used for Professional Development, Technology, and other resources. We received 24 New iPads from Title 1 funding. The Library Media Center received a Promethean Board and Projector. Our students and teachers participated in some Writing Lesson provided by Title 1 funds, also.
