2020/21 Classroom Grants
WILDLIFE & FORESTRY STUDENT PROJECTS
The Wildlife & Forestry students will be building bird houses to install on the nature trails around the Wausaukee school. The students will study the bird species and surrounding trees. This grant will be used to purchase the birdhouse materials and forestry tree study devices. See Pictures!
HOW AMERICA WORKS
The Government class will be using the Scholastic's book "How America Works" to enrich the class curriculum. Students will get a deeper understanding of government and hopefully will be inspired to have meaningful discussions and become positive citizens in their future communities.
VISUAL PRINTS OF L.A.M.P.
SPEECH & LANGUAGE
LAMP is a therapeutic approach to augmented and alternative communication based on neurological and motor learning principles. The goal is to give individuals who are nonverbal or have limited verbal abilities a method of independently and spontaneously expressing themselves. This grant will be used to purchase visual prints of LAMP Words for Life to allow students more exposure. The greater amount of exposure and modeling from teachers and classmates helps increase student learning and expressive communication skills.
BACK TO SCHOOL SUPPLIES
WAEF made a donation to support to purchase of needed student backpacks and supplies to help get students ready for learning this fall.
SHOES FOR SCHOOL
WAEF donated to support the purchase of a variety of shoes for Wausaukee school to have on-hand as the need arises.
2019/20 Classroom Grants
ONE SCHOOL ONE BOOK
Each elementary school student had the opportunity to simultaneously read the same book (The Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler Warner) to model the habit of regularly reading together (at home and at school) which helps to build a strong literacy foundation.
The Girls Softball team is using the book "The Energy Bus" to enhance the student-athlete outcome by exploring themes like the power of being a part of a team and pushing oneself to be better in all aspects of life.
