Spring 2013 was another banner grant cycle our Summit schools!
SEF is proud to have distributed almost three-quarters of a million dollars in grants this school year alone. Thanks to all the teachers and administrators who submitted grants to bring new ideas into our schools! The top grant highlights include:
iPads for the Incoming 6th Grade Class
Every student in the incoming 6th grade class will be supplied with an iPad for use both at school and at home as a resource for learning. The iPads will be integrated into the curriculum and used as a collaborative learning tool that can be customized for each student's individual style of learning.
Smart Boards and Document Cameras throughout all Summit Schools
All schools in the district will receive Smart Boards and Document Cameras to facilitate instruction within the classroom.
RJ Palacio Author Visit to LCJSMS
Award-winning author of Wonder, RJ Palacio, will spend one day at LCJSMS to discuss the meaning of her book and her writing process with the students. Ms. Palacio will conduct two presentations, book signings and a lunch event while on site. Wonder is required summer reading for all LCJSMS students.
Virtual Classroom at SHS
Teachers will continue to build their online library of podcasts, allowing them to "flip the classroom" and spend more time interacting with students and facilitating instruction.
All-City Honors Ensembles
Get ready for the first district-wide honors ensemble for both band and orchestra! Fifth and sixth grade instrumental music students will be given the opportunity to audition, attend musical workshops and play in a district-wide performance.
INSPIRE Magazine at LCJSMS, Laser Engraver at SHS, and a Forensics Debate Coach are among the other exciting grants funded!
