Exxon Mobil announced that it will award Educational Alliance grants to 14 schools in the Madison Metropolitan School District. The grants will support math and science education in each school.
The $500 for each school were awarded to Orchard Ridge, Chavez, Sandburg, Leopold, Muir, Franklin, Falk, Lindbergh, Emerson and Thoreau Elementary Schools. Sherman, Spring Harbor, and Toki Middle Schools and West High School also received grant awards.
School principals can quickly name the specific activities their schools have been able to implement or expand.
“Thoreau has used these funds to host a family math night. Families learned together while playing math games and reading math picture books,” said Thoreau Elementary Principal Kathy Costello.
