HES Teachers Win Bright Ideas Grants

On Thursday, November 7, two teachers at Hardeeville Elementary School were presented with Bright Ideas grants from the Palmetto Electric Trust. Bright Ideas grants are awarded annually to help enrich teaching and learning in schools within the Palmetto Electric service area. Ms. Gabriella Ion’s grant will fund a project called “Discoveries of the Bees,” in which small Bee-Bot coding robots will be used to expose young children with special needs to the world of coding and strengthen their ability to solve problems and collaborate with classmates. Ms. Hedy Frazier’s grant will help fund “Get Write On Board,” a writing project that will teach students the skills needed to read and write as they produce a memorable class book they can share with family and friends.
