SEF Grant Award 2017

It was an exciting morning here at Mt. Vernon! We had the Springfield Education Foundation here to present three new grants for teachers at our school.

Innovative Educator Grants:
Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. Dillon received a grant for $2,111.40 to purchase 10 Lego Robotic kits for K-1 students. These exciting kits help develop an engineering mindset and offer many creative teaching and learning opportunities.

Mr. Metzger received a grant for $695.00 to purchase a “Club Pack” of Dot and Dash robots from Wonder Workshop to help start a robotics coding program for students at Mt. Vernon Elementary. In conjunction with Code.org curriculum students will see digital programs connected to physical objects

These two grants together will help make sure that we are utilizing the technology purchased for us with your help through the bond measure many of you voted for, and ensure that our youngest learners have access to 21st century skills.

Social and Emotional Health Grant:
Mrs. Ziolkowski received a grant for $919.88 to fully fund a set of primary and intermediate Kelso social skills curriculum for teaching positive self-management and social skills.

The SEF awarded 28 grants this year, and MTV staff received 3 of them. We really do work with the best people. More on these and other exciting projects happening at MTV to come!

Peachjar Electronic Flyers

Parents/guardians, our school is transitioning to a new electronic flyer delivery system called Peachjar.  If you have an email address on file with the school, one or two times a week, you will receive an email with important news from the school or other important flyers about upcoming events or opportunities.  This new system is going to save our school time and money, while being more convenient for you.  We assure you, your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose.

To ensure smooth delivery of this communication, we suggest you add “SPS@peachjar.com” to your email contacts.  When you receive your first e-flyer, be sure to click “always display images.”

If you are NOT getting flyers from us, please give us a call to make sure we have your correct email address on file.  You can also see the flyers by clicking on the Peachjar link on the school website.

Thank you for helping us save time, money, and lots of trees!
