CEF Grants at Skyridge

Skyridge Middle School staff and students were recently visited by the Camas Educational Foundation Prize Patrol, and mini grants were awarded to John Condon and Gayle Cooper!

Mr. Condon will be using the $1,300 allocated to him for the purchase of eight student compound microscopes which will provide our students with the ability to study science “up close” and in detail!

The $650 awarded to Ms. Cooper will be used to establish a rolling cart equipped with a Native American resource library for our 7th grade classrooms. Students will experience life during historical eras through the multicultural perspectives depicted in the resource books. Units of study will vigorously explore both the literary elements and the historical experiences of the Native American tribes that wove the fabric of our current NW culture.
