Innovative educational projects can now move forward at Reeds Spring Schools, thanks to mini-grants from the Reeds Spring R-IV School Foundation.
The foundation passed out checks totaling $3,825 during halftime of the October 23 football game between Reeds Spring and East Newton. The foundation recognizes classroom teachers who strive to enhance student success and achievement.
At Reeds Spring Primary School, this year’s grant funds will be used to purchase equipment for special needs students, video equipment, and science materials to assist with hands-on experiments.
Reeds Spring Elementary School plans to purchase electronic building blocks, which are components that snap together to create small electronic devices.
Reeds Spring Intermediate School will buy advanced video equipment and a subscription to the website “Bitsbox”, designed to challenge creative and critical thinking skills.
At Reeds Spring Middle School, there are plans for equipment designed to enhance the study of physics, measurement, and information technology by launching and monitoring a capsule.
Reeds Spring High School will receive funds to add to the thriving student-led business, "The Coffee Shop.”
