We are pleased to award the following mini-grants totaling $4,000 for the 2020-21 school year! 

 

 

Denise Hanebuth

Early Childhood Development, Health, Biology, and Psychology

 

Hanebuth_Mini-grant

 

Name of Proposal:  Shaken Baby Syndrome Education and Awareness

 

With her mini-grant money Mrs. Hanebuth purchased a RealCare Shaken Baby Simulator. The use of this simulator will be an insightful and memorable demonstration for students to understand the long term effects of shaken baby syndrome as well as to raise awareness of triggers that could lead to improper handling of babies. This tool will support the MS curriculum for Child Development Standards which covers the proper care of infants and the factors involved in infant development. 

 

 

Taiquitha Robins

Human Anatomy & Physiology/Genetics

 

Robins_Mini-grant

 

Name of Proposal:  Essential Student Dissections Forging Opportunities and Growth (ESD Frog)

 

Mrs. Robins used her grant to purchase each Human A&P student their own individual frog to dissect because due to Covid, students could not work in groups to do dissection.  These individual dissection kits will make it possible for the dissection to happen this year.  Without this grant, the HAP students of 20-21 would not have been able to have this experience.

 

 

Amy Bennett

Chemistry and AP Chemistry

 

Bennett_Mini-grant

 

Name of Proposal:  Increasing Teacher to Student Proximity

 

Mrs. Bennett purchased an iPad with her grant money to benefit student learning by increasing proximity to students.  Having the ability to move among her students with the iPad rather than being tied down to the board will give her the ability to make sure students are engaged and on task during the lectures.

 

 

Tamika Brown, Mike Hendershot, Patrick Robey

Physical Education

 

PE_Mini-grants

 

Name of Proposal: COVID-19 Physical Education Motivational Supplies

 

The Physical Education coaches used their grant money to purchase a table tennis set along with paddles and table tennis balls. The goal of this project was to provide students with more options to be active in physical education class.  Also, in the era of COVID-19, these games allow the students to participate safely while maintaining social distancing.
