2019-2020 Mini-Grants

FHS Human Biology Lab Supplies

High School Science teacher, Ms. Christine Groff has been awarded a grant through the Fairview School Foundation to purchase sensors and probes for her Human Biology course.  These cutting edge tools bring the science material to life.  And when the students can experience these unique labs first hand, a better understanding of the material is achieved. The Foundation funded this project through EITC donations.

FES Grade 4 Space Camp Kickoff

The fourth grade began the 2019-20 school year with a Space Camp theme kickoff.  The Foundation provided a grant to fund engaging learning activities that focused on the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing, July 20, 1969.  Students completed nonfiction comprehension activities using the books, “Who was Neil Armstrong”, purchased locally at Pressed, and participated in a presentation from Penn State Behrend Professor, Jim Gavio, about constellations, the moon, and recent discoveries in space.  Also, as part of this grant, students visited the mobile planetarium, provided by Yahn Planetarium, and they constructed the phases of the moon using Oreo cookies, charts, and a Powerpoint presentation.  What a fun way to learn about space!  Congratulations to the fourth grade team!

FHS Corner Cafe

The High School library is now home to the “Corner Café”, a coffee café run by Mrs. Yatsko’s special needs students.  The Foundation provided the start-up items needed to create and initially supply the café.  Mrs. Yatsko’s students will be the main employees of the Corner Café.  With this opportunity, her students will have many authentic experiences which will provide them with the skills they need to have an independent future and basic job readiness such as: social skills, money skills, advertising, dependability and responsibility, hygiene, and working as a team.  Congratulations to Mrs. Yatsko and her students – have a great school year!
