PEP Committee Awards Two Learning on Location Grants


PEP awarded one Learning on Location Grant to Wildwood Elementary this fall 2015 grant cycle.  Ms. Candace Wright's 3rd Grade class utilized the funds from the grant to attend the Louisiana Art & Science Museum on November 5, 2015.

 

In December, PEP is also awarding Learning on Location grant funds to Mayfair Laboratory School.  Ms. Amanda Austin's 5th grade class will be taking an adventurous trip to BREC’s Bluebonnet Swamp in December 2015.


 

The Public Education Project (PEP) is for those who believe that we can make a difference in public education and that the time is now.  PEP is a continuation of the Autonomous School Network Project from 2007.

 

Forum 35 recognizes that a strong public education system is essential for economic prosperity, social equity, and active civic engagement.  The Public Education Project aims to support progressive and innovative education reform initiatives by providing committed volunteers and resources, as well as engaging other organizations and community leaders in a collaborative community-wide effort.

 

We award up to 3 grants each semester to local EBR schools to go on a field trip the correlates with a topic they are learning in school. The purpose of these school field trips is to provide an opportunity to enhance, strengthen and complement the classroom or grade level curriculum. These field trips will serve to enhance students' knowledge and skills, as well as provide a recreational learning atmosphere. We fund the admission cost, transportation and food (if needed). We believe that field trips expose kids to things that the classroom could never duplicate.
