Thanks to a $1,200 grant from District 279 Foundation, some students at Cedar Island Elementary are enjoying enhanced learning opportunities. With the grant funds, teacher Pam Kohlhepp and occupational therapist Laurie Johnson selected and acquired specialized assistive technology that helps students participate in new ways. A few examples include students being able to:

  •  Greet classmates in Morning Meeting or take a turn reading aloud by using a voice output device
  • Access otherwise inaccessible electronic toys
  • Turn on a mixer to help stir ingredients in during a group cooking activity
