Congratulations to Brooke Knowles

LINCOLN ELEMENTARY TEACHER AWARDED $500 GRANT
 
Thanks to the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR), Lincoln kindergarten teacher Brooke Knowles has been awarded the Helen Pouch Memorial $500 Classroom Grant!  The project submitted by Ms. Knowles will address student reading proficiency, fluency, and confidence by purchasing children’s books to send home with students in reusable take-home folders.
 
This grant was announced in the March 13, 20 & 27 Newsbits last year (hwww.gfps.k12.mt.us/newsbits/march-13-2017). This grant opportunity will be offered again for 2018 thanks to our local DAR contact, the Black Eagle-Assiniboine Chapter so be thinking of a possible project that could make your classroom eligible.
 
Congratulations, Brooke Knowles!
