An initiative to develop a MakerSpace at Blue Bell Elementary kicked off this school year and has quickly grown with the support of staff, parents and community members and most recently a $5,600 grant from the Wissahickon Educational Opportunities Foundation (WEOF). The grant will pay for new robot equipment that the students can build and program.
National Merit Scholars Honor Teachers
Melissa Sadowski, Stony Creek 4th grade teacher, is thanked by Sun Min Kim, one of our 8 National Merit Scholars who selected a favorite teacher or staff member and dedicated a book to him/her at the school board meeting. Each book was inscribed with a personal message from the student. Really powerful!
