The Logan County Education Foundation awarded three grants to Indian Lake Schools this year totaling nearly $1300. 

ILHS Math Teacher Amber Shively received $275 for "Break Out EDU." This innovative idea involves

a set of different locks, boxes, invisible ink pens, and more that will allow Shively to set up an “escape room” kind of setting in her classroom.  There are online activities, as well.  Mrs. Shively plans to use it for reviews to see which teams can “breakout” first.

At ILMS, Computer Instructor Mike Maurer was awarded $492 to purchase Raspberry Pi's for his 8th grade computer class curriculum. Geared toward engineers, tinkerers and techies, this bare bones, credit card-sized computer serves as a tool for teaching the fundamentals of computer science. Classes will be able to use the Raspberry Pi's to build a wide variety of items such as electronic chess boards and GIF cameras. Mr. Mauer hopes the Pi's will introduce technology, computing skills, and programming to students, while encouraging collaborative learning, boosting computational thinking and firing imaginations. 

Finally, ILES third grade teacher Pam Scarpella received $488 for her "NO Bully Zone."

Each week students will have anti-Bully meetings to teach studentshow bullying effects others and what they can do if faced with a bully situation; Either to help another student or if they are the victim. Scarpella will teach our anti-bully rules and each week will have a different video, books, scenarios where they an discuss the bullying situation. Students will receive, stickers, bracelets, and an activity book to complete and earn prizes at the end.  

Congratulations to these teachers and instructors!
