The Somerset Partners In Education Parent-Teacher group has given out $2,200 in mini-awards to teachers in the Somerset School District.
The P.I.E. organization gave out six grants, two at each of the three district buildings.
One grant at Somerset High School will help purchase a rock tumbler that will be used by both art and science classes. The second high school grant will help to fund the Life Skills Peer Mentor Group.
Somerset Middle School will be the regional host for the “Friendship Games” in May. One of the P.I.E. grants will help support that event. The second middle school award is for math clickers. These are tools that can be used in real-time to track student progress on math lessons.
The Homework Club at the elementary school is one of the grant recipients. The other elementary grant is to bring in a local author for an assembly this spring.
P.I.E. opens its award process to teachers from all three school buildings. Applications are reviewed by P.I.E. members and recommendations are made to the P.I.E. executive board.
