Chamisa Elementary will be setting its sights on science for the 2008-2009 school year – with Principal Cindy Montoya at the helm.

The Los Alamos National Laboratory Foundation has awarded the school a $15,000 educational outreach grant in support of science, selected among 85 outstanding applicants.

“I am honored and excited to be working with such a committed group of parents, teachers and scientists,” Montoya said. “Because of their desire to improve science education for all children, they wrote an exceptional proposal that was accepted by the LANL Foundation. It’s just a wonderful example of community partnerships.”

Chamisa’s strategic goal to improve science and mathematics fits within the framework of curriculum required by the New Mexico Public Education Department. The educational component will come in the form of hands-on classroom experiments, field trips and teacher training. The work will benefit every grade level, with a particular focus on third- and fourth-graders.

With the grant, the school will purchase a variety of resources from the grant to benefit students. These resources will include hands-on science kits, one Hartcourt kit and solar car kits.
