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! MCCEF collected ideas for super-big projects during the fall of 2018. Of the 18 ideas submitted, five projects have been formed. The Foundation is working with committees on developing the projects and supporting funding efforts.

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.
