Congratulations to Mrs. Tucker and Mrs. Hartzell for winning the Bright Ideas Education Grants. Both of our winners are multiple year winners.
Mrs. Hartzell's grant award will go toward several colorimeters which will be able to be used by the biology and chemistry department. These colorimeters can directly plug into student Chromebooks and will generate spreadsheet data and graph quantitative data. Colorimeters allow for the quantification of many experiments including Beer's Law, concentrations of unknown solutions, and studying changes in concentration over time for experiments with a color product.
Mrs. Tucker's grant this year will be used to acquire a valuable curriculum aimed at guiding students through the process of crafting their personal statements for college applications. The previous grant was instrumental in launching the Ruling Our Experiences (ROX) program for our middle school girls last year. The impact was wonderful, and this year, all 7th-grade girls have the opportunity to participate in the program with Ms. Tucker and Ms. Kersey.
Thank you for your dedication to empowering our students!
Happy Thanksgiving to our Falcon Families. We are thankful for each and every one of you.
