Joined by several students, Crestview School of Inquiry Teacher-Librarian Ann Reynolds holds up a check for a $1,000 grant Local 5 and Bankers Trust awarded her.
Crestview School of Inquiry will add a Spectrum Light Table to its Makerspace, thanks to teacher-librarian Ann Reynolds. Reynolds applied for and won a $1,000 One Classroom at a Time grant from Local 5 and Bankers Trust. Representatives from both organizations surprised Reynolds and some of her students with the news on Friday, Jan. 19.
“I couldn’t be more excited for our kids to add this to our library!” Reynolds said in an email. “(It) will be a centerpiece in our library to facilitate STEAM learning for all ages.”
Private donations and instructional supply funds will supplement the grant used to purchase the table.
To help with your child’s transition to all-day kindergarten, West Des Moines Community Schools dismisses kindergarten classes early from Aug. 23-Sept. 8. During the afternoon, kindergarten teachers schedule time to visit with families to get to know their students and how they can best help them at school.
