WARSAW — The Warsaw Education Foundation recently awarded three Warsaw Community Schools’ educators with Red Apple Grants.
They were awarded for fall 2021. It was the second of two cycles of grant awards for 2021. Teachers will use the remainder of the school year and beyond working on these projects, and their students will benefit from the learning these opportunities provide.
The grants are awarded to teachers for classroom projects as well as school-wide projects that advance enrichment opportunities, support innovative and inventive teaching and promote academic exploration.
The grants went to:
- Andrea Miller with the Warsaw Area Career Center for a plastic recycle shop. High School students will set up the center and learn how to manufacture products, including their own designs, from recycled plastic.
- Rebecca Denzer with Lakeview Middle School for Tiger Time Lego Creators. Middle school students will be collaboratively building complex Lego sets during open library time.
- Robin Coffman with Lakeview Middle School for Merging Science in 3D. Middle school students will be provided with Merge Cubes, 3D models, for discovering science in three dimensions.
Founded in 1987, the WEF has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants to teachers in Warsaw Community Schools through the Red Apple Grant Program.
