Marshall Public Schools Education Foundation, Inc. recently awarded three $500 Mini Grants to local teachers. The grants went to a teacher from each division -elementary, middle school, and high school. Winners were as follows:

Elementary – Kim Alberson and Spainhower Primary 1 st Grade Teachers –
Decodable Readers. These decodable books align to the science of reading, which
is an evidence-based approach to literacy. They will enable readers to improve
their reading skills by following a carefully sequenced progression of words that
are consistent with the phonics skill currently taught.

Middle School – Daniel Wright – Six MIDI Keyboard MIDI Controller, Full Size 25
Keys for inserting music into the music notation software. Students need the
opportunity to express themselves through music. These tools will be used for
recording music using various music notation software programs and it will allow
students to hear their creation without the stress of performing their music.

High School – Breanne Harmon – Classroom Headphones and Super Yum Box.
The new headphones will allow each classroom computer to have its own headset
to allow students to listen independently to videos which support instruction.
The Super Yum Box will expose students to international business and culture
through foods.
