A 2021-2022 Green Developmental Preschool program grant provided the purchase of new building and construction materials. With these new materials students experimented with simple science concepts, such as balance and gravity, and practice early math skills, like sorting, creating patterns, and building shapes, all while expressing their creativity and learning to work cooperatively with their peers.
Green Schools Foundation provided funding for an iPad, keyboard, and case for a special student, Jackson A. in Mrs. Meffert’s Green Intermediate School classroom. This device has already supported his learning in so many ways. Assistive technology allows students who learn differently to shine. It enhances learning by helping them work around any challenges that stand in the way of fully understanding or engaging in their schoolwork. By incorporating assistive technology tools into their learning, it can help students capitalize on their strengths and work around challenges to increase their self-reliance, independence, and self-confidence.
Greenwood's Therapy Stairs is an exceptional piece of equipment paid for by funds through a teacher grant submitted by Heidi Sluss, Physical Therapist. The stairs will be instrumental in helping with mobility for our preschoolers and kindergartners.
