TCE Receives Foundation Grant

TCE Receives Foundation Grant
Posted on 12/08/2017

Tri-Central Elementary pre-k students are benefitting from the purchase and introduction of new curriculum this year funded in part by a grant from the Tipton County Foundation. According to Shannon Rinehart, pre-k teacher, “Thanks to $3,422 from our community foundation, and other donors, we were able to get an exciting new curriculum program for our classroom this year.”

The OWL program (Opening the World of Learning) is designed for pre-k students to learn about the world around them through whole group lessons, small group lessons, hands-on activities and independent work. This program introduces the students to new vocabulary through children’s books, short stories and poems. We utilize learning stations to reinforce and review topics that have been introduced through the week. Using fantastic manipulatives from the OWL program have made learning fun and meaningful for the students in a new way. 

We are thankful for the generosity of the Foundation and other private donors to help our classrooms grow through donations like this grant. This new curriculum will allow us to help our students apply what they have learned to what they will learn in future grade levels. We are excited to be able to share this program with our current classes and look forward to sharing it with our future classes too. Early childhood education is so important and having the right tools make it a more fulfilling experience for everyone.
