    I’m always looking for funding support to make experiential learning opportunities available to my students, particularly given the socioeconomic demographics of our school population.

    Recently we built an igloo out of real apples. When we were done, we catapulted the apples into the woods for the wild animals for the winter. We have a high interested in building this year. Recently I purchased some magnetic building tiles. The students love them but there aren’t enough for the whole class. I am seeking to increase these tiles and tap into the engineering, math and technology aspect of STEM with these students.

    Since we are a parochial school, we do not receive any government funds for special art instruction. We cover the basics, but with the grant we would be able to fund some specialized projects as well as invite local artists to bring art lessons to our students.
