District 50 Education Foundation Supports Creativity Grants
Thanks to the generosity of the District 50 Education Foundation, teacher Valerie Gillis was awarded a Creativity Grant to start a Board Game Club at Metz Elementary last fall. It’s just one example of how the District 50 Education Foundation supports creativity in the classroom.
Because of the grant, Metz students are able to play a variety of board games and learn literacy, math, and problem solving skills, in addition to practicing good sportsmanship.
As the video below shows, it’s also a lot of fun.
Next Friday, the Education Foundation hosts its annual breakfast at Westminster High School. Ranum Graduate and retiring Columbine High School Principal Frank DeAngelis is the guest speaker. DeAngelis will speak about how the education and support he received from District 50 helped him to guide his community through the days following the Columbine High School shooting.
