Classroom Projects

The Mason County Central Educational Foundation (MCCEF) has been supporting MCC Schools through faculty mini-grants for almost three decades. And the Board of Directors plans to continue that support but with a new focus: super-big projects! The Foundation is seeking ideas that can make a large impact on students, teachers, and/or staff. MCC staff and faculty, please submit your super-big ideas by Friday, September 14th!

This spring, MCCEF chose a couple of super-big projects for future funding: robotics and school safety. Both projects still require finite goals and descriptions but choosing a focus will allow the Foundation to assist with research, resources, and funding needs. $1000 was given to the District Robotics as seed money for this year-long project.

In addition to choosing larger projects, MCCEF donated $3,450 to smaller faculty mini-grants for the 2018\19 school year.

The Science Department (Mike Weinert) at MCC High School received $500 for Legos as a 3D model material for the Mars Project, an interactive Space and Environment requirement incorporating Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The High School Athletics Department (Tyler Koops) received $346 to update weight room equipment for use by the physical education classes and athletics.

Victory Early Childhood Center (Sally Smith) received $1,098 to purchase books for the Read, Enjoy, and Discover program. This funding was in addition to funds VECC had already raised to provide nine books for 61 preschool-aged children during the 2018/19 school year, encouraging a strong foundation for reading. VECC (Kim Marrison) also received $506 for preschool S.T.E.M. mathematic materials.

The Spartan GRIT (Brianna Wise) G- Gratitude, R- Resilience, I- Intellectual Curiosity, T- Trustworthy received $1000 for the event to be held on September 4th encouraging positive behavior.
