GRANTS AWARDED

2008-2011

Small Rural School Achievement Grants

Technology innovation for instructional settings: Purchasing equipment for V-Tel Spanish Language, NWRESD ORVID course streaming, and OSU synchronous course instruction. These varied approaches targeted the improvement of students’ opportunities in three districts from 2008-2012.

2006

Woodmansee Art Foundation Grant

The grant funded the development of Pringle’s Sesquicentennial Mural Project. The mural was the students’ expression of Pringle over its 150-years of service to the south Salem community. A local arts council supported an artist in residence approach in which our students designed three scenes of Pringle’s school for a 30-foot outdoor mural. The students made ceramic 4 by 4-inch tiles, painted their portion of the scene on the tiles and fired and glazed them. The mural became a center piece of the school’s 150 year celebration and is currently displayed on the front of the school.

2000

Community Foundation of Silicon Valley Grant

Lynhaven Elementary worked alongside Partners in Print to develop a parent-training program for at home reading targeted to support parents of students who were second language learners. The Community Foundation of Silicon Valley grant sponsored a variety of evening reading events that helped parents understand how to work with their children in one-to-one reading in their homes. Part of the funding went to helping parents establish home libraries for their children.

1998

California Department of Education #1510 Grant

We developed a grant for the support of our 7th and 8th grade students in completing our eighth grade culminating project. The culminating project was used to evaluate our students’ mastery of English Language Arts standards in writing, public speaking and research using a project theme of their choice. We establish a video lab where students could practice public speaking skills with green screen backgrounds. Where were able to leverage the video lab for running our morning broadcast of Eagles Announcement.
