The kindergarten teachers at Rockville submitted a grant request for $1,200 to be used to purchase new play sets for the kindergarten students. Research shows that children need to speak & listen before they can read & write. These dramatic play sets will increase the oral language our students are using and learning while they "pretend play" with their classmates. These sets include a market, vet office, post office, workbench, camping set, restaurant, and they will also use the kitchen they currently have. 

Our board and the community voted to approve this grant, it passed with majority vote on our online poll. Pictured are the grant funds being presented to Kindergarten teachers, Shelly Graff and Niki Cash.

Congratulations,
Circle Grove Preschool!

The amazing teachers at Circle Grove submitted a grant request for $933 to purchase new toys and classroom enrichment items for the preschool students. Circle Grove has relocated to Broadmoor Elementary while their building is under construction, the staff organized all of their old classroom items during the move and noticed a lot of toys were broken or just outdated. Circle Grove does not have the budget to purchase brand new toys and other items each year, so they turned to the PTO for help. 

Our board and the community voted unanimously to approve this grant. Pictured are the grant funds being presented to Miss Karen, Miss Jenn, Miss Tammy, Miss Kim by our PTO President McKenzie Phillips.

Congratulations,
Broadmoor Elementary!

These iPads will combine fun and technology in a learning based environment. Osmo helps students learn in fun and engaging ways. Students use physical manipulatives, such as letter tiles and coding blocks, to engage and learn on screen. The students love the Osmo activities and will use these year-round!

This grant was submitted by Maureen Graham for the purchase of coding robots to be used in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classes. Coding is an essential part of our every day lives, and while students are able to code on computers, having a robot that moves and responds based on a student’s program can help bridge the gap between theory and practice. It is much more exciting having a hands-on learning experience to understand how code works and promotes creativity, critical thinking and problem solving.

The grant passed unanimously at our September meeting. Ms. Graham is pictured with our PTO Vice President, Heather Reitz!
