I have some very exciting news to share with the community! I have just learned that my grant proposal to the East Longmeadow Education Endowment Fund( has been fully funded! This grant money will enable me to pilot several excellent engineering units designed by the "Engineering is Elementary" curriculum that was created at Boston's Museum of Science. After attending a 3-day long workshop, I was convinced that this program would greatly enhance the academic and Enrichment program for all of our students!
I am very excited to know that the town supports my charge to bring more hands-on, engineering, problem-solving activities to our students. I would like to thank ELEEF for funding my grant proposal, and I would also like to thank the town of East Longmeadow for your support of the GT/Enrichment program at Mapleshade Elementary School!
Thank you to everyone,
David Axelrad - GT/Enrichment Teacher at Mapleshade Elementary School
