Ukulele Club

The Ukulele Club was started at lunchtime at EDS this winter. The club meets once a week during lunch time recess and is open to any 2nd or 3rd grade student. The purpose of the club is to offer a fun activity during lunch where students can express a love of music and play instruments together. This grant will help to purchase supporting materials such as music, tuners for the teachers and replacement strings. Purchasing ukuleles has the added benefit of allowing the school to use the instruments to augment the regular Performing Arts classes for K-3 students. MEF awarded $975 to the Ukulele Club at EDS.

Life in the Sea - In Class workshop by Mad Science

 “Life in the Sea” is a workshop that relates directly to K/1 PBL project on Ocean Conservation. A key component of PBL is for students to learn from authenitic experts in the field. Through this program, students would learn from these experts and experience specially designed hands-on curriculum which will engage and inspire them about conserving the ocean and marine life within it.

Students will learn about underwater habitats and discover how humans can help protect ocean life. Mad Science is known for their creative and engaging, motivating presentations for children, with objectives that align with STEM. Students will learn about the ocean’s diverse life forms—from plankton to whales, as well as discover a variety of underwater habitats, and learn how humans can help protect ocean life.

 MEF awarded $1,155 to the "Life in the Sea" K/1 PBL project.

Now Board for Special Day Classes:

This grant is for all special day classes at EDS.  The whiteboards will allow all lessons to be interactive and accessible to all students.  It will allow teaching to each student’s level and increase engagement, participation and focus for all students, and especially those visually impaired.  This teaching tool will be especially helpful to special needs students. 

  It will allow students to manipulate information and content rather than using pencil and paper (which can be difficult for these students).  Teachers will have a better pictures of what students understand using this technology. 

MEF is excited to support this project and has awarded $1500 towards this endeavor.

Project based Learning Garden:

MEF's most recent Small Grant recipients will be turning boring bushes into delicious delights with their Common Core Project Based Learning garden.  Congrats to Mrs. Russell's 5th grade and EDS community!
