Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
Edmonson County Middle School has received a $7,500 Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant for “Making a Way for a Better Future”.
We are thrilled to announce that Lowe’s has awarded ECMS funding for “Making a Way for a Better Future.” According to Library Media Specialist Mrs. Charla Caudill, “As we stated in our grant application, the mission of our project is to provide our students with opportunities in science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) that support critical thinking, problem-solving, and effective communication skills. Our project has multiple phases and the next phase is to expand opportunities to meet the needs of more students. Our students need opportunities to research current ideas and strategies and learn new ways to apply their new knowledge. Our students will use tools to learn how to create coding programs for robotic tasks and computer applications."
She also said that the upcoming phase of their project will require the purchase of Chromebooks to expand access and provide opportunities for development.
“Our school and community will greatly benefit from this grant. We wish to thank our friends at Lowe’s for generously supporting this important project,” said Principal Brandon Prunty.
All K-12 public schools in the United States are eligible for the Toolbox for Education program. More information is available at www.ToolboxforEducation.com.
