The Foundation awarded a total of $5,000 in funding to two school sites. Both projects were designed to benefit the entire school. Funding was made available through the Granville Home of Home campaign.
1. Madison Elementary School for the PBIS Incentive Program
The grant will create a reward space in a portable unit for students in K-5th grades. Much like rewards rooms in secondary schools, this space would have areas for students to socialize, play games, listen to music, and otherwise enjoy each other’s company as a reward for exhibiting positive behavior during the school day.
2. Kings River High School for the Ag Woodworking Program
This grant will fund the expansion of the woodworking portion of the agriculture class. During the school year, students c reate bird houses, tool boxes, and raised planter beds. Our goal is to expand the program to more students and for more projects. Ultimately, we will offer these projects to the community for sale.
