GT Awarded iGniTe Grant


Read All About It…..the Mead Elementary newspaper club, created with the intention of boosting student’s attitudes about writing.  Students use the Writing Process to revise, edit and publish their stories.   As the stories began to develop, our newspaper staff realized that we needed pictures to connect the stories to pictures.  This led to the writing of a grant through the GT Department called “iGniTe”.  We were granted $500, used to purchase 4 cameras and the equipment needed to link to the computers for editing.  The interest in the newspaper club has increased tenfold.  The students and our newspaper staff are looking forward to the Mead Matters first edition.
