Mr. Gary Blaz, superintendent, was recently notified that Tandy Savage has received a Governor Grant in the amount of $1,000.  Tandy Savage applied for a Greenhouse grant to complement her Science curriculum.  Tandy's project synopsis is as follows: “I believe that students should know the facts about plants and what better way to learn this than by working with plants from seed to maturity.  It would involve growing vegetables as well as flowers.  Children really do like to get their hands dirty and this would be a great way for them to do just that.  Students will have the opportunity to run controlled experiments in the proper environment which can mean working in a more real life situation as well as having more fun.” Congratulations Tandy.
