What is your favorite teacher doing this summer.. Part 2 (Updated 8/4/2014)
Mrs. Wagner has been exploring "Brain Breaks" in the primary classroom as a way to help children "recharge" and "refocus" during the school day.
Mrs. Bader & Mrs. Wagner wrote a grant proposal with the focus being to infuse Visual Arts into core subject areas. If the Crayola "Champion Creatively Alive Children" $2500 grant is awarded, the following staff will be working together to give students a new outlet to showcase mastery of standards: EPHS: Mrs. Sansenbaugher (Science) and Mrs. Spanos (Spanish), EPMS: Mrs. Roberts (English), Mrs. Best (Science) and Mrs. Wagner (1st Grade Social Studies). Parent and community business owner, Mrs. Rebecca McElroy, would work with these teachers to showcase student art in downtown store fronts. Mrs. Vollnogle (EPMS Principal) and Ms. Madsen (EPHS English) also assisted in the editing of the proposal. Grant notification will take place in October.
