Check out the great things that our teachers are doing…..

Stephanie Hill (Rm8) and Karina Shimkos (Rm9) are recipients of the Kohl Children’s Museum Early Childhood Connections grant. The grant provides opportunities for teachers to learn about and begin to use the Project Approach in their classroom. It also includes a professional development component for teachers, interactive learning experiences for the children both in classroom and at Kohl Children’s Museum, an on-site parent/child activity, a project celebration event and family passes to the museum. Programming content addresses NAEYC, Ill. Learning Standards, and Common Core Standards.
