At Dr. Jonas E. Salk Elementary, Lori Alvarado, a Special Day Class Teacher received a grant through the Magnolia Educational Enrichment Foundation (M.E.E.F.). Mrs. Alvarado purchased STEM materials to use in her classroom with her 3 and 4 year old students. These materials support her project- Early Intervention/Preschool Success in MSD! The students are creating, building and exploring color, light, and magnetism. They are also experimenting and building shapes, buildings and cars. These new materials offer the students experiences and an environment that encourages active, fun exploration and experimentation.
