Faculty & Staff Summer Grants

Parents Association Announces Recipients of Faculty and Staff Summer Grants

This year marks the third annual award for the Educational Innovation Grant—a joint grant between the St. Patrick’s Parents Association and the school. This grant awards faculty members a substantial Educational Innovation Grant to undertake program design work that is innovative and interdisciplinary in nature and will make a significant contribution to the current and future Day School program.

This year, the award goes to the Sustainable City Proposal from five faculty and staff members: Michelle Basile, Tom Vorenberg, Jonathan Fichter, ReAnna Laney, and Maegan Rose. This grant will provide training for a blended learning course that explores the question: What could a city of the future look like? The grant will make this interdisciplinary project for Middle School students that will integrate environmental science, history, art, and culture possible.

Beth Cole, Grade 6 Math teacher will attend additional training for continued improvement to implement a STEM curriculum in Grade 6 by attending a two-day course on SketchUp.  This course will provide Dr. Cole with additional proficiency in 3D printing that she will use to help her students in their design work.

Lauren Marshall, Kindergarten teacher will obtain a twenty-hour Children's Yoga Certification to enhance her personal practice of yoga and to bring the peace of yoga to her students in a more meaningful way.

Anne Tyler, Grade 7 and 8 Music teacher will travel to Oconomowoc, Wisconsin to study World Music Drumming with West African and Caribbean drumming master teachers.  The drumming course will deeply enhance Mrs. Tyler's world music curriculum.
