Celebrating Success

 

Past grant recipients were invited to report on their SEF-funded projects during the first in a new series entitled "Celebrating Success."

Teachers representing five grants were on hand to discuss their innovative ideas and evaluate the impact of those programs on their students and classroom curriculum.  

 

The event took place at the SEF's quarterly Board at Large meeting. Grants that were celebrated included Southington High School's Who Wants to be a Science Extraordinaire,Kelley/Plantsville Schools' Mysteries of Math in Music, Thalberg's Classroom Planetarium, Flanders School's Give a Little...Get A.L.O.T., and the Refrigerated Saltwater Aquarium at SHS.

 

"The goal was to have students understand that music and math are very much connected," Kate Fitzgerald Diaz told audience members during her presentation.  Diaz was awarded funding for her Mysteries of Math in Music.  The grant enabled Diaz to invite a quartet from the Hartford Symphony Orchestra to perform for her school communities and assist in formulating objectives for classroom programming.

 

As a token of appreciation for their commitment to instilling a love of learning in our Southington school students, grant recipients were given $50 gift cards from Anthony Jacks.  The SEF appreciates the generous donation of the gift cards from Anthony Jacks, which has long supported the organization.
