BioMedical Science Technology Upgrade- Newton Senior High School

Congratulations to Jodi Morgan-Peters who was awarded $5,554.96 to purchase upgraded technology tools needed to work with student MacBooks, and consistent with Project Lead the Way’s program updates. The funds will be used to purchase spirometry probes, reflex hammers, accelerometers, EKG equipment, and hand-grip dynamometers to upgrade the Principles of Biomedical Science and Human Body Systems courses! “Our students are so fortunate to learn in a district that has consistently invested in their technology acquisition skills.” (Jodi Morgan-Peters, NHS Science Teacher)

Book Vending Machine - Aurora Heights Elementary 

The Book Vending Machine will increase the desire of reading in students. Being able to earn gold coins to "buy" a book from the machine is extremely motivating to students. Students are able to choose any book from the machine that interests them and keep it forever. This will inspire a love of reading in students, which in turn, will support our efforts to increase student achievement in reading. The more students practice reading, the better they become! Grant from Jolene Comer
