Congratulations to our Spring 2017 Grant Winners! 

Each winner received a $500 gift card along with other Envision goodies.

 

Lisa Fernbach of Killearn Lakes Elementary School for her project titled “Headphones for Special Ed Students.” Lisa used her grant to purchase noise canceling headphones for students in her Special Education classroom. This allows students to focus for longer periods and improve their performance.

Holly Pursino of Canopy Oaks Elementary for her project titled “Bookworms in Today’s Colorful World.” Holly used her grant to purchase more ethnically diverse books for her students to read. By diversifying the books in her music classroom, Holly hoped to make students feel more included and relate more easily to story characters.

Jannifery Funderburg of Canopy Oaks Elementary for her project titled “A Reading Escape.” Jannifery used her grant to purchase supplies for a reading nook in her classroom. By building this reading nook, Jannifery hoped to encourage reluctant readers to pick up books in a fun and inviting environment.

Joseph Miller of Kate Sullivan Elementary for his grant titled “Printable Learning: Taking Learning to New Dimensions.” Joseph used his grant to purchase a 3-D printer. This technology brought math and science problems to life and got students excited about learning! Students learned engineering, geometry, science, and coding, all in one class!

Katrina Roddenberry of Riversink Elementary for her project titled “Odyssey of the Mind.” Katrina used her grant to purchase membership, supplies, and the transportation needed to travel with her Odyssey of the Mind team to Crestview, FL for a competition. The team had to use only balsa wood and glue to build a structure that could hold as much weight as possible. This team developed creative problem solving skills.
