Great things are coming

The librarian won a $1500 GEF grant

Congratulations are in order! Our librarian recently won a grant for $1500 from the GEF Foundation. The funds will be used to purchase materials needed for a mobile makerspace. We will have items teachers and students can use in the library or in their classrooms. Some items include math and science kits, along with other educational, fun supplies with which we can challenge our students to build, create, and be 21st century thinkers. Stay tuned for pictures and videos.
