QUEST students (formerly Gifted and Talented) have the exciting opportunity to compete in creative problem solving competitions through Region 7 Education Service Center and the East Texas Academic Rodeo. Students utilize LEGO sets provided with previous APEF funding. This year QUEST would like to extend the 5th grade program to provide broader areas of adventure. Funding will provide We Do Sets and Activity Packs and Mindstorm sets.

Name of Grant: Making Each Moment Count Campus: South Athens Teacher: Sarah Williams, Aaron Carroll Amount: $700 Teachers often take flashcards, spelling lists, and vocabulary words with them when they escort their students to various places in the building. This grant will allow grade levels to organize and save their current reading and math objectives along with relevant power points and videos to DVDs and play them throughout the school in hallways.

Name of Grant: Access Understanding Campus: South Athens Teacher: Chera Lambright, Daniel Ledesma Amount: $1,500 As our limited English proficient student population grows, teachers need all the help they can get to meet their students’ academic and linguistic needs. Our goal is to have all our students reading and writing in English well before moving to the next campus. An electronic translator would allow students to type a word in English (or Spanish) and have the word translated.

Name of Grant: Calculators for College Readiness Campus: Athens High School Teacher: Dinita Heitz, Jessica Hemann Amount: $3,000 Students will be allowed to use these calculators in their science classes and become more aware of what will be needed of them when they move into college and prepare themselves for the outside world. Many of our students do not have the ability to have access or the money necessary to purchase a graphing calculator and this gives the class a set for all students.
